Two of its petals are on the stairs and a third is held by a doll dressed in tattered garments leaning against a door. Nearby stands a girl, whose hair flies upwards as though struck by a violent gust of wind. According to the artist, the sunflower represents the 'never-ending battle we wage with unknown forces'.
Acquired from the artist by Sir Roland Penrose in Sept 1946. By descent to present owner, Anthony Penrose via Mayor Gallery.
