Label Text:
Subject is St. Helena, mother of the emperor Constantine, who according to legend was responsible for her son's conversion to Christianity. Martha's 1923 inventory indicates that this painting stood on an easel in the northwest corner of the parlor. The original painting, dating from the 1560s, was purchased by the British National Galley in 1878. Helen Rickhart was possibly a friend of Susan's.
