    We are grateful to Dr Salomon Grimberg, who is preparing the authorized catalogue raisonné of Leonora Carrington's paintings, for confirming the authenticity of this work.

    This drawing was formerly in the collection of Edward James (1907-1984), perhaps the most important British patron, collector and promoter of the Surrealists. His extensive collection included many works by Carrington, Dali, Magritte, De Chirico, Picasso, Ernst and Giacometti. This drawing is the study for a painting known as The Elements or The Palatine Predella which was also in Edward James' collection, purchased at the Pierre Matisse Gallery in 1948.
