During the 1920s-30s Grant regularly accompanied Vanessa Bell on painting trips to France, and this painting dates from a winter spent in a rented villa just outside St Tropez. Bell and Grant both painted several canvases there, and Bell's St Tropez canvas 'Interior with a Table' is also in this display. The two artists worked in separate rooms in order not to influence each other. In the early 1920s Grant worked with a range of warm browns and earth colours, rejecting the brilliant colours he and Bell had used before the First World War.
