In 1946 Ernst settled in Sedona, Arizona together with Dorothea Tanning. He remained there until 1953 and this work was painted during this period. He saw the landscape of Arizona 'as a parallel to the landscape of his mind' (Diane Waldman, Max Ernst, a retrospective, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1975, p. 57) and painted a large number of lyrical landscapes and "microbes'. In its mysterious power and formal inventiveness, this work is an exceptional image.
