Emmy Bridgwater was one of a group of British women surrealists who received national and international recognition during the 1940s and early 1950s. Born in Edgbaston, she was a member of the Birmingham Group of surrealists and contributed to several international Surrealist publications.This drawing was made using the surrealist method of 'automatism'. An artist would attempt to draw withoutconsciously controlling the movements of their drawing hand, allowing the subconscious mind to take over. Once an interesting form had evolved by automatic means they would then start to work on the drawing more consciously.

Purchased with the support of the Friends of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, 2000.
