Physical description

Pencil and watercolour painting on paper of a circular Art Deco style room. Indigo marble pilasters divide niches in the curved walls filled with glass windows, shelves, flowers, and doors. The floor is a pale violet marble with a sun design stretching outward from the centre to reach two blue bands near the walls. White moulding lines the upper boundary of the walls below a large circular opening in the ceiling that reveals circular columns on an upper storey above.
