The theme of flowers is recurrent throughout Morandi's artistic research – he preferred fresh flowers during his youth and dried or silk ones in his later years.
In this composition, the tall thin vase holds a small bunch of roses, which seem to almost peer over the edge projecting their shade onto the table.
