@Delvaux is known as one of the major Belgian Surrealists, and yet in fact, he maintained a certain distance from the Surrealist movement. This work shows his mature painting style. Here nude women and a scholar examining an ammonite are arranged in an illogical fashion, bathed in a mystical light. This painting exudes a strangely, mysterious mood. A standard motif in Delvaux's work, the expressionless nude women, are here arrayed before the viewer's eyes as some sort of props for an erotic fantasy.
