Florence (Florrie) Bird is a famous 19th century model, painted here as Eos the Greek Goddess of Dawn (Aurora in Roman mythology). According to Toll (2003)*, the painting may be inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, Tithonus:
[…]Thy sweet eyes brighten slowly close to mine,
Ere yet they blind the stars, and the wild team
Which love thee, yearning for thy yoke, arise,
And shake the darkness from their loosen’d manes,
And beat the twilight into flakes of fire. […]
