Philpot's sister Gertrude (1879–1957) married Clement Cross in 1907. Their daughters, Gabrielle (b.1910) and Rosemary, became favourite models for their uncle. This double portrait, which has echoes of Philpot's portrait of his own two sisters (1922; private collection), was painted at the artist's home, Baynards Manor, near Horsham, and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1928.
