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.

"Using a double exposure, McBean imitates the two figures in a Swiss weather house, with the coatless figure coming out and the other one staying inside." pg 159, T. Pepper 2006

Plate 83, page 118 in Terence Pepper's "Angus McBean Portraits: 2006, The Monacelli Press.
