Description
Published to accompany the first major retrospective of Dorothea Tanning’s work in the UK since her death in 2012, this fully illustrated paperback publication tells the detailed story of her extraordinary career. Alyce Mahon provides a comprehensive overview of Tanning’s multifaceted career and an essay on her soft sculptures and macabre installation Chambre 202, Hôtel du Pavot. Idoia Murga Castro considers Tanning’s love of ballet and Ann Coxon explores Tanning’s influence on many artists of today.

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.

Alyce Mahon is Reader in Modern and Contemporary Art History at the University of Cambridge, Ann Coxon is Curator of Displays and International Art at Tate Modern, London, and Idoia Murga Castro is Tenured Researcher at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas in Madrid.
