Markets, with their laden stalls and lively interactions, were favourite subjects for Frances Hodgkins throughout much of her career. On 6 November 1901, she wrote to her sister Isabel Field from the Hotel du Forum describing a scene in Arles:

'Then comes the green grocer with her two pretty daughters always beaming from behind a barricade of pumpkins, melons, pomegranates, figs and green stuff. This is my favourite stall and I have made many studies of it.'
