The sitter, Harman Grisewood (1906–1997), joined the BBC in 1929, subsequently becoming Chief Assistant to the Director-General. David Jones had a formative influence upon his ideas on art and literature in the summer of 1931, when they shared a house on Caldey Island. This portrait was painted at Jones's parents' house in Brockley. Its title implies an analogy between craftsmanship and the fine art of poetry.
