This painting is one from a series Hillier designed themed 'Fossils, Insects and Reptiles', produced for the Shell prestige advertising campaigns. These were used as press adverts, school wall charts and book illustrations. Tristram Hillier was born in Peking and studied at the Slade School of Art and then in Paris, where he met and was influenced by the Surrealist painters. He became a member of the Unit One group in 1934.
