Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012)
Over a seven-decade career, Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012) redrew and extended the boundaries of surrealist art. She developed her extensive body of work between the USA and France, producing paintings, drawings, costume and set designs for ballets, soft sculptures, novels and poems. Her output draws upon a deep and personal universe invented to give meaning to modern life, and her pieces create an uncanny space that is at once seductive and pernicious.
