In the 1950s Lundquist's work was dramatically expressive in technique, while his imagery remained closely in contact with visible nature. Here the image is subjected to severe simplification and locked into a formal structure and strong surface texture of coloured paint strokes. The artist has described the image as representing the head and shoulders of a woman with flowing hair. A pair of wings and the head of a second figure are also suggested and there is a window at top left. The veiling of the imagery through simplification and by the use of red and warm colours was intended to heighten the irrational dream-like effect of the image.
