Yves Tanguy’s 1937 work ” Toilette de l’aire ”
This well-know French surrealist, ( 1900-1955), although obviously influenced by Dali and after being mentored by the Dadaist and early Surrealist artist Andre Breton; made his mark on art history with a derivative painting style that suggests arcane relationships between imaginary objects and beings set in vast, dreamlike, otherworldly landscapes.
