Natural objects, and especially objets trouvé, inspired Adnams’ paintings throughout her life.

From her earliest compositions onwards, Adnams’ played with scale in a surrealist way. She recorded that ‘When I first went to see Rene Magritte at The Tate I saw him for the first time and I nearly passed out. So often the same thought had been with me.

Napoleon III disliked the portrait of him drawn by Gill. In December 1867, La Lune was censored. “La Lune will have to undergo an eclipse,” an authority commented to Editor Francis Polo when the ban was instituted, unwittingly dubbing Polo’s subsequent publication: L’ƒclipse, which made its first appearance on 9 August 1868. Gill would contribute caricatures to this successor of La Lune as well.
