Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Still-life of vase with roses and greenery, a teapot, and two smaller containers sitting on a red tablecloth against a yellow background. The objects are pressed up against the picture plane and dominate the composition. The objects, background, and tablecloth are all heavily patterned, creating an overall sense of decoration and flatness.
