This grisaille painting takes up the classic iconography of vanities with a still life and a skull surrounded by leaves and flowers.
The phrase inscribed on the scroll ('La vie de l'homme est semblable à la fleur' -'The life of man is like the flower') refers to an engraving made by Arnold Houtbraken (1660 - 1719), a copy of which is kept in the British Museum.
