Dorothea Tanning Dies at 101

Posted in Surrealism with tags on February 6, 2012 by Dylan Thomas Hayden

Thanks to a sudden spike in hits on this blog, where she has been something of a recurring motif, I just noticed that Dorothea Tanning died on 31 January. Probably the last major figure associated with the original Surrealists, her passing really marks the absolute end of an era.

A Century of D.T.

Birthday, 1942

Dorothea Tanning is one hundred years old today. Though probably still best known as the last wife of Max Ernst, she is a brilliant painter and sculptor in her own right, and has a good claim to be the greatest living Surrealist, and one of the last. Fellow Ernst-lover Leonora Carrington is another survivor of the era, though a mere 93 years old. It’s astonishing to think Ms. Tanning was born before the First World War, the Cabaret Voltaire and the first stirrings of the movement to which she would contribute so much.  I hope that she  is well enough to enjoy her century.
