About this artwork

Maxwell was influenced by primitive art and the work of Paul Klee. In common with these influences, Maxwell's own art shows a disregard for perspective, a directness, and a selective approach to detail. They have have a poetic, dream-like quality and he would often introduce into them a fanciful element, in this instance stuffed birds.
