The portrait represents two young girls outdoors in a landscape. The older girl sits and wears a pink dress. Her right hand rests in her lap and her left hand holds a pair of cherries across her chest. The young girl stands beside her in a gold dress. Her right hand points at her sister’s lap and a green and red parrot rests on her left wrist. Behind the girls is a landscape view with a body of water and a house with a fence.
