    Description
    Half length portrait of an unnamed woman holding a microscope slide up to the light, preparing to take notes. A compound microscope, together with two vessels of unidentified liquid, sit on the table in front of her. The woman wears a white dress, a watch and red lipstick. A window is suggested on the right as viewed.

    A man and woman are visible in the background, examining the contents of a test tube. The woman holds a sheet of paper and appears to be dressed in a nurses' uniform, suggesting a hospital environment.
