Dow studied in Paris in the 1870s and was much influenced by European Symbolism. On his return he was associated with the Glasgow Boys and became a close friend of William Stott of Oldham.

This allegorical work and Scott's Memory of an Island share a love of dramatic decorative pattern and flat colour.
