Details

Following a major retrospective of her work at the Tate Modern in 2019, we are delighted to host an exhibition of prints by Dorothea Tanning. While living in New York, Tanning discovered Surrealism in 1936 at the exhibition, Fantastic Art, Dada and Surrealism. She had her first two solo exhibitions in New York in 1944 and 1948. She is known for her painting, sculpture, printmaking and writing. It was during her time in France in the 1950s-1970s, that Tanning became a prolific and accomplished printmaker. She was a very good friend of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose and visited Farleys on numerous occasions during her lifetime.
