This is one of a series of paintings by Redon which combine flowers and a female head. For Redon this motif was expressive of a harmony or correspondence between nature and the human soul. Here the subdued colours emphasise the ethereal quality of the image. The woman's head is drawn in a simple, almost archaic style, and is likely to have been inspired by early Italian Renaissance portraits.
