• Great expressiveness in a small format.
• In a particularly creative way, the artist allows the flowers to emerge from the open spaces of the intense areas of color and only adds a few outlines and details at the end.
• In Karl Schmidt-Rottluff's late work, the artist devoted himself increasingly to his immediate surroundings and the “quiet life of things” (quote from Karl Schmidt-Rottluff).
• Alongside landscapes, flower still lifes became the defining motif of the period.
• In the mid-1960s, Schmidt-Rottluff had to give up oil painting for health reasons; the inscription on the reverse - “Unfortunately no more than an idea” - may therefore indicate his regret about not being able to execute the composition in oil
.

The work is documented in the archive of the Karl and Emy Schmidt-Rottluff Foundation, Berlin.
