Whilst working alongside Peter Lanyon, Sven Berlin, Bryan Wynter and later Wilhelmina Barns Graham, patrick Heron and others around the three Crypt Group exhibitions in 1946-8, Wells began to accommodate more explicit figurative references within his work. During this time he tackled a number of still life themes and in line with the overtly romantic aspirations for the Group as a whole, he also at times adopted a more expressive manner. The current painting is a clear example of this tendency, in its presentation of antiquated still life forms set within an undefined almost subterranean light. The use of strong local colours make the shapes emerge jewel like from this dusk creating an interplay of floating forms across the picture plane.
