This dramatic drawing of a floral bouquet features a flat-bowl shaped vase on a pedestal. Three cherubs appear to be holding up the bowl and other one appears to be climbing down after making a last minute adjustment to some of the blooms. Tendrils of flowers drape onto the table to add a bit of lightness to the thick collection of flowers in the vase.
