Pensive woman sitting at the table. On the left side there is an open book, and on the right side there is a plant in full bloom. The woman does not seem to pay attention to both objects, instead, she directs her gaze somewhere in the distance. Neither literature nor a piece of domestic nature brings joy to the heroine. The picture becomes a statement about the sometimes overwhelming everyday life.
