A black-and-white photograph of Ethel Waters set against a floral background. She wears a dark-colored head covering and large earrings. With one hand, she holds a floral-printed fan in front of her to partially obscure her mouth and the lower part of her face. On the reverse is a handwritten inscription in graphite reading [Ethel Waters / By Carl Van Vechten], with a photographer’s stamp in the bottom left corner.
