Anna Lea Merritt was born in Philadelphia, but spent most of her professional life in England, settling there in 1871. She soon befriended members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, art critic John Ruskin, and Victorian artist George Frederic Watts.

Merritt studied inmates at a British a mental facility as well, to try to capture what she viewed as the essence of Shakespeare's Ophelia as performed by the great British actress Ellen Terry, and one-time wife of George Frederick Watts.
