The model for the portrait was the artist’s wife, the poet Helen Parry Eden. When asked about the work, the artist commented: 'There's no story connected with the picture… Everyone must make their own. My only idea was to make a modern picture. We were in rooms at the time it was painted, househunting, and Griselda is a portrait of my wife. She is supposed to be stopping at an inn, where she is opening a map to see the best route after having lunched'.
