Photograph of Maria Anna, Infanta of Portugal, standing, facing three-quarters to the right. She looks towards the camera. She poses with her hands held together in front of her waist. She wears a shawl, and a bonnet with wide ribbons tied under her chin. It appears that pink colouring has been applied to the print, on the sitter's cheeks.
