This painting is of a beauty in an ancient Royal court. There is nothing in the background apart from three red drops of blossoms that have fallen to the floor. This combines the sadness of the beauty regarding her age as which passes like flowing water where beautiful flowers have easily fallen.
Whilst treasuring spring, one still worries about the flowers blossoming too early. Early blossom means early wither and spring implies an early start and early finish. What is sadness? It is when fallen flowers cover the ground.
