The shape left by the area of bare paper towards the top right evokes a woman’s head in profile. There is the suggestion of another head beyond and the forms of a naked body or bodies in the centre, with perhaps another figure at the top left, all set within a dark interior. How fortuitous such a reading might be, given the rough spontaneity of the washes, is uncertain.
For a discussion of the improvisatory and often erotic nature of the watercolour studies making up most of this sketchbook, see the Introduction.
Blank, save for slight offsetting of watercolour from folio 13 recto opposite (D28804).
