Daphne Charlton, born 1909, was a student at the Slade School of Art, some four years younger than her fellow student Mary Adshead. She married George Charlton, a fellow painter and teacher at the school, and the pair moved to 40 New End Square in 1932.

The Charltons were introduced to Spencer in 1939 and from then on he often visited them at their Hampstead home.  All three went on a painting holiday together in the summer of 1939 to Leonard Stanley, a remote village in Gloucestershire.  During this stay Daphne Charlton painted Spencer`s portrait, and soon after their return to London Spencer produced a large scale portrait of her, which sits in the Tate collection, London.

A self-portrait of the artist may be seen in the Burgh House and Hampstead Museum.
