Dorothea Tanning – In Memoriam

Last week, Surrealist artist and writer Dorothea Tanning passed away at the age of 101. Art critic Jerry Saltz wrote a short yet heartfelt piece about her contribution to the surrealist movement as a woman and her influence on contemporary women artists – find it here.
