The title of our painting is the opening line of the famous poem “The Spider and the Fly” by Mary Howitt (1799 – 1888), published in 1828. It is one of the most recognized and quoted first lines in all of English verse.

The poem is a cautionary tale against those who use flattery and charm to disguise their true intentions.
