Helen Lundeberg began to explore geometric abstraction in the 1950s and her works were described as both formal and lyrical. Typically, they are painted in limited palette, as seen in Moonscape. This work is from a period when the artist was exploring imagery that was associated with landscapes, interiors, still lifes, and planetary forms—compositions that she called enigmas.
