Margaretha Roosenboom, the daughter of Nicolaas Roosenboom, specialized in painting flower and fruit still lifes and was one of the first professional painters in the Netherlands. Her still lifes were innovative. She broke with the tradition of the ordered showy still life and opted for a more spontaneous and looser rendering of just one or a few types of flowers. In this case for climbing roses that she does not place in a vase, but playfully climbs up against a Spanish guitar.
