Grace Golden was born in London and studied at Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art. She exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1936-40 and made a career as a book illustrator, concentrating on theatrical subjects and scenes of London life. This view of the crowds at Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park, near to Marble Arch, was one of her first oil paintings. She worked more usually in the media of watercolour or wood engraving because of her training as an illustrator. The artist recalled that she had seen the principal speakers many times at Speakers Corner and that the woman speaker in the foreground belonged to a sect called the Pillar of Fire.
