A portrait of Magdalene Sibylla, Churfurstin von Sachsen in an elaborate frame with crest in the top and bottom center. She wears a scarf around her curled hair with pearls draped on the top and pearl earrings and necklace. Her dress is high collared with a shoulder covering. In the center of her chest and around her waist and upper arms are jewelled trim. She sits in a chair with arm rests carved into a face decoration. Behind her is a column, and a fringed curtian.
