Winifred Nicholson drew upon the theme of flowers throughout her career, having become entranced by the subject in the early 1920s while living with her husband, Ben Nicholson, in Switzerland.

Winifred particularly focused on the subject matter of flowers during her time spent at Villa Capricco in Lugano and in the rural countryside of Cumberland, and 'Ragged Robin' is a quintessential example of this type.

These paintings mark a distinctive period in Winifred's career prior to her divorce and to her time spent in Paris, where the focus of her work becomes briefly more abstracted.

Dorothy Elmhirst was the daughter of William Whitney. She moved to England in 1925 following her marriage to Leonard Elmhirst.

Together they founded the Dartington Hall Trust, whose charitable objectives were focussed on rural regeneration, eduction and creative endeavour.
