"Dorothea Tanning (1910-2012), the American Surrealist, writer and poet, lived a life of storybook tales, surrounded by luminaries of the avant-garde in the visual, literary and performing arts. To better understand this artist and her legacy, it is imperitive to revisit the years she lived in France, primarily in the 1960s and 70s. In Unknown But Knowable States we present some thirty works on paper. It is at this time in her life when she intentionally leaves the familiar, twisted imagery of Surrealism and moves confidently towards a new, groundbreaking direction. Amazingly, Dorothea Tanning's work of this period remains largely unexplored, yet clearly her fearless, distinctive vision, prolific body of work, and art historical importance are undeniable." - from catalog introduction.
