About This Image

Signed and titled on verso. Exhibition print.

In this Christmas card McBean stands behind his gate, onto which he has superimposed a sparkling, shiny effect.

McBean, a singular talent in 20th-century portraiture, was known for his unique ability to incorporate surrealist elements into complex, highly crafted compositions in which no detail was left untouched.

The Gernsheims were early collectors and strong fans of McBean's work, and he is highlighted in "The Gernsheim Collection, Harry Ransom Center," University of Texas Press, Austin, 2010, page 300.
