In the 1976 catalogue accompanying the exhibition Woman’s Art: Six Women Artists, Joanna Margaret Paul described how her life and her art practice were inextricably linked: “My work is always rooted in the particular circumstances of my domestic life, the objects, clothes, toys, cups, flowers, that speak of myself, my child, my husband and the house, garden, land, that frames my life.” Still-life subjects such as this one highlight these connections.
