This work was painted between Rothko’s mythical, surrealist paintings of the early 1940s and the block-like compositions of his mature style. At this time, he began to view the literal depictions of mythical subjects as inhibiting. Describing the biomorphic forms in paintings such as this, he wrote: ‘every shape becomes an organic entity, inviting the multiplicity of associations inherent in all living things’.
