Painted in 1979 when she was 80 years old, this work of art illustrates Eileen Agar's commitment to the Surrealist painting style that she had developed during the previous 40 years. Artists such as Agar who were influenced by Surrealism dealt with the bizarre and the incongruous, trying to express the subconscious mind through the juxtaposition of unrelated and often fantastical items. Alongside allusions to the ancient world, Agar frequently used objects and imagery from the sea and shore in her work.
