The painting is inspired by the the poem The Idea of Order at Key West by the American Modernist poet, Wallace Stevens. The poem was included in his anthology which won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1955. Ghislaine’s picture is inscribed with one of the poem’s memorable lines: “she was the single artificer of the world [in which she sang]”.
