"This painting is closely bound to Santiago Rusiñol experiences as the rest of objects that he collected in the Cau Ferrat. It is not a commissioned work but belongs to a series of portraits that took his friends, relatives or acquaintances as a model.
On this occasion, it seems that under the title Miss Mac Flower was hidden his friend Matilde Escalas i Xamení. She was born in Palma (Balearic Islands) on the year 1860. Matilde stood out as a pianist, composer and a musical pedagogue."
