Yves Tanguy

Yves Tanguy (1900-1955) was a French surrealist painter. He spent his childhood vacations at Finistère in Brittany, where the landscape with its menhirs and dolmens made a lasting impression on him. Tanguy joined the Surrealist movement in the mid twenties and made the breakthrough into his mature style in 1927, characterised by abstract biomorphic shapes resting or floating in a desert-like or under-water space mostly in a tightly limited palette of colors.
