Original artwork description by the museum's website (© - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

The female figure is not a portrait sitter but a model in allegorical guise, and the oil lamp and books are traditional symbols of vigilance. Fragonard paints in wide liquid strokes, stopping for few details, in a style typical of his work in the 1770s.
