About the artwork
Here, Sandys captures an intimate domestic scene of a couple sharing a bath. Whilst this shared bathing should indicate an atmosphere of romance and sensuality, the two leering tulips point to the woman’s detached, disinterested face. The cats at the foot of the bath mirror this couple in opposite: they lay apart, with backs turned to each other and mistrustful looks on their faces, yet their tails are entwined, demonstrating an affectionate bond seemingly absent from their human counterparts.

About the artist
Edwina Sandys (born 1938) is a New York based British artist and sculptor. Sandys’ parents were aristocratic (her father was a Baron and her mother the daughter of Winston Churchill), and was a debutante herself. She had a career as a newspaper columnist and novelist before becoming an artist in 1970. At first a successful painter, she turned her attention to sculpture in the mid-1970s, and has exhibited her work internationally. In 1984 she was awarded an MBE in the New Years Honours for services to British cultural interests in New York.
