Collier is regarded as one of the foremost artists of the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. Born to a wealthy English family in 1850, Collier rose to prominence in high society and married into the famous Huxley family (his wife was Aldous Huxley's sister). He eventually remarried his wife's sister after her passing which required them to travel out of the country to perform the ceremony legally. He painted portraits of many famous persons and members of the royal family such as Charles Darwin, Rudyard Kipling, George V, and Edward VIII.

This painting depicts the prophetess Cassandra of Troy. The blue mantle represents her role as Priestess of Apollo and the simplicity of the image brings out the expression of her eyes. Her dark dress, dark hair, and the dark background add mystery and heighten the effect of her complexion. There is a sense of the ethereal and otherworldly as we see her eyes focused upwards towards some fatal mystery.
