Kate has an Armand Marseille bisque head with brown hair and brown eyes. She is wearing a green taffeta striped afternoon gown with a cream lace jabot and collar.

The way the sagebrush is suggested rather than delineated indicates Remington's growing debt to Impressionism and the new directions his work was beginning to take.
