The profuse arrangement of flowers includes roses, tulips, carnations and daffodils. The vase, decorated all'antica, is set on a plinth with a classical style relief of two figures. Flower paintings were highly appreciated in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Although flower paintings sometimes referred to the ephemerality of life, the blooms could also represent luxury since flower gardens were the preserve of the wealthy.
