Sir John Gilbert was largely a self-taught artist. The model for this painting was likely a woman carrying a basket in Covent Garden, and the piece was originally done in watercolour as a study for an illustration of the 1001 Arabian Nights. The fruit basket used by the model is transformed into a golden dish in the oil painting version.
