In 1948 Mary Fedden had her first one man exhibition at the Mansard Gallery in Heal's department store in London. The editor of Woman magazine attended and on seeing the sill lifes in the show thought they would make good front covers and commissioned Mary to paint seasonal covers of flowers and landscapes. This painting was used as the front cover of Woman magazine in 1948.
