Alphonse Mucha made the portrait of Josephine Crane-Bradley (1886–1952) during his stay in the United States of America at the commission of her father. The portrait was commissioned for Josephine’s wedding with Harold C. Bradley. Mucha portrayed Josephine as a personification of Slavism, simultaneously using her portrait for the poster of Slavia Insurance Company, which was commissioned from him by Bohemia. Later, he also used it for the one-hundred Czechoslovak banknote. The Bradleys donated the painting through the University of Wisconsin to the National Gallery in Prague.
