"‘Siamese Triplets’ is loosely a representation of a wooden, interlocking African carving given to the artist by Nancy Cunard in the late twenties, which appears frequently in all his work of this period as a spindly-legged woman or object, also called ‘Madame Triple Nipple’ (letter to compiler from Alexander Postan 30 November 1973). It is also possible that ‘Siamese Triplets’ symbolises in some way the tripartite relationship which Nancy Cunard, Brian Howard and John Banting shared." - Tate
