La Demoiselle de la Sanct Grael is inspired by Malory's Morte d'Arthur, where she is mentioned three times in Book XI. Malory describes her as “passynge fayre and yonge” (XI, ii), and as “[dressed] alle in whyte.” She is dressed in red in my painting, as Grail symbolism can be red and/or white. I have taken the Arthurian figure of the Grail maiden to create for her what has already been established by the Pre-Raphaelites, eg Dante Gabriel Rossetti, as a pervasive and influential conception of her mystical visual form.
