Frederick Millard arrived in Newlyn from Reigate, Surrey, in 1884 and shared a studio with the artist Ralph Todd. He is thought to have left Newlyn in 1890 and in 1920 was believed to be living in Falmouth.

This painting is of the courtyard of Myrtle Cottage, where the female students of Stanhope Forbes painting school lodged before the First World War. In 1918, it became the home of Alec and Kay Walker, the founders of Cryséde Silk.
