Nash was inspired by poetry throughout his life. This painting, completed a year before Nash’s death from a heart attack, relates to William Blake’s poem Ah! Sun-flower. It draws on Nash’s fascination with the cycles of nature, in particular the equinox and phases of the moon. The influence of surrealism can clearly be felt in the painting’s strange otherworldliness.
