This emotive portrait of a young woman was created by the Austrian painter Ignaz Mansch in 1911. She is turned just a bit sideways, slightly tilting her head towards her right shoulder and smiling at the viewer with an open mouth and beaming eyes. She is dressed in a small white camisole and has a scarf wrapped around her shoulders. Her arms are crossed under her chest in a slightly provocative gesture. The portrait seems like a snapshot, as if she had just received a compliment, blushing with a little shame and also joy over it. Mansch managed to combine intimacy, humanity and warmth in this seemingly simple portrait, doing justice to his own high standard and the girl's personality at the same time.

The portrait is in good condition with minor traces of wear; the frame shows several chips along the outer rim. The painting is signed and dated in the lower right, "Mansch 1911". The overall dimensions, framed, measure 51 x 44.5 cm; the dimensions of the canvas are 37 x 30 cm.
