Raymond Johnson was born in Chariton, Iowa, the son of a poor Baptist minister. He moved to Chicago in 1910 and entered the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. Shortly thereafter Jonson attended the Art Institute of Chicago, where B.J.O. Nordfeldt (1878–1955) introduced him to modernism. He settled permanently in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1924, where he became an important pioneer in the history of American abstract painting.

This is one of three oil paintings that Jonson produced in 1938, the year he commenced his long teaching career at the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque and founded the Transcendental Painting Group of abstract artists.
