As a student in Paris in the 1930s Julian Trevelyan wrote 'to dream is to create'. In 1936 he became a member of the Surrealist Group who drew inspiration from dreams, the subconscious and child art and in later years he declared his religion to be Surrealism.
The style of his work is eclectic, ranging from figurative realism to surrealism, the latter being represented in this example.
