This watercolor portrays a young woman reclining on an Empire revival-style recamier couch. The woman at leisure was a popular subject in late-nineteenth-century American painting. An exceptionally fresh demonstration of Wiles's work in watercolor, "The Green Cushion" was awarded the William T. Evans Prize for the best entry at the American Water Color Society's 1897 exhibition.
