A color photograph of a white-carpeted library in a home. Across the entire back wall of the room are built-in wood bookshelves with an assortment of books arranged on the shelves, as well as other objects including a small round vase at top, a mask on the second row, and a tall vase at center. Some of the books are placed outward so that the covers are visible, including book on the artists Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo, a book titled "People of Peru", and a book titled "The End of Blackness." At center, in the foreground, is a low bamboo steamer chair with slat back and seat. At proper left, mostly out of frame, is a white sofa.
