Note:

Tristram Hillier was a significant British surrealist artist of the 20th century. Hillier was closely connected with many key figures in the development of British art from the 1930s onwards, forming part of the Unit One group alongside his contemporary Paul Nash, whilst also heavily influenced in his work by European surrealists such as Max Ernst and George de Chirico. The present piece exhibits Hilliers highly distinctive style, defined by his use of sharp lines and striking contrast between light and shade.

 

Hilliers work forms part of prestigious collections, including that of the Tate Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, and Pallant House Gallery, amongst many others.
