The back of the sheet features an identical mirror image, probably produced by transparency. It shows a bust of a young woman. Her shoulders and face are turned to the left of the frame, which is tilted downwards at a three-quarter angle. There is also a black stone sketch of a nude male bust in the lower left-hand corner.
