In the picture we can see a young naked woman lying on her bed. There is rich furniture and decoration around her, the linen is made of silk. The woman is lying on her left side, rising herself on her elbow and stretching her arm towards the golden rain streaming from above. There is a playful smile on her lips, her eyes are shining and filled with curiosity and joy. Her pose expresses expectation and desire. Her hair is styled, and arms are decorated with bracelets. A small golden cupid is hovering above her head. An alert maidservant is peering from behind the curtain in the background.
The spectator’s attention is drawn to the figure of the young woman. It is achieved due to the successful usage of chiaroscuro, color and tones, and different lines. So the linen is depicted in cold light-blue tones, thus underlining the warmth of the girl’s body. She seems almost alive. Rosy and yellow colors used to portray the woman, contrasted to the dark colors of the surrounding background, create an illusion of inner light and life.
The composition is diagonal, in fact, consisting of two triangles of light, with the brighter one being situated from left to right, and a supplementary one – from right to left. The triangles balance each other and create expression. The picture is obviously accomplished according to the rule of the golden section, with the major figure being shifted to the right.
