According to Peter Trippi's biography Waterhouse closely associated women with the beauty, simplicity and decay of flowers and saw them both as vessels of the seeds of new growth. This study was made at a time when 'flower-women' assumed a particular significance for Waterhouse. Between 1908 and 1914 he painted a series of images of women and flowers such as 'Gather Ye Rosebuds while Ye May' and 'The Soul of the Rose'.
