The daughter of a wealthy settler in rural Connecticut, Pinney had unusual exposure to culture. Unlike many other women at this time, Eunice Griswold Pinney read extensively and painted watercolors. She is believed to have taken up the art in her thirties and based many of her watercolors on written stories such as Goeth's "Sorrows of Werther", Homer's "Iliad", and the Bible. Pinney also painted more personal subjects such as mourning pictures and this intimate watercolor of two women.
