The artwork portrays Bertha Hamilton Don-Wauchope, an Edinburgh model who posed regularly for Cadell, posing in the artist’s studio in Ainslie Place, Edinburgh, where the lived from 1920. Cadell often included the names of colours in the titles of his paintings. This practice had been made popular by Whistler and became fashionable during the Edwardian period.

Cadell studied in Paris and lived in Munich before settling in his native Edinburgh around 1909. Cadell's pre-war work is influenced by the Impressionists. From around 1920, his work became brighter and bolder. Shadows were suppressed to such an extent that the paintings of this period are comprised of areas of flat colour.
