The rectangular lithographic image depicts the huntress Atalanta. It is rendered in soft grey tones and is unbordered, in portrait orientation. The image is a close-up of a woman, depicted frontally, in a seated position with her legs bent toward the right. Her left foot is dipped into a pool. She leans down to adjust armour on her left calf. Her loose-fitting gown is cut in a deep ā€œvā€ at the front, and her hair is tucked up behind her neck. To her right is a pole which rests diagonally and a burnished shield. In the background behind her is a grove of flowers.
