"Flower Seller" is a captivating artwork that portrays a middle-aged woman behind a zinc bath filled with indigenous flowers of the Cape. This painting represents a departure from the traditional depiction of flower sellers as young girls, highlighting Tretchikoff's penchant for capturing the essence of Cape Town's working class.

In this piece and others like it, Tretchikoff showcases characteristic Cape Town workers, each with their own unique role and story. Titles such as "Cape Fisherman," "Crayfish Seller," and "Herb Seller" offer a glimpse into the lives of individuals who contributed to the vibrant cultural tapestry of Cape Town. This thematic approach aligns with the genre of "London cries," where typical characters from everyday life are brought to life through art. The choice of depicting a middle-aged woman as the flower seller adds depth and authenticity to the artwork. It humanizes the subject, moving away from idealized or romanticized portrayals and instead focusing on the dignity and character of a seasoned worker.
