Yves Tanguy

Yves Tanguy

(1900 - 1955)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Surrealism
Famous Works:
  • Toilette de l'Air (1937)
  • Indefinite Divisibility (1942)
  • The Invisibles (1951)
Yves Tanguy's path to art was an unusual one. Tanguy seemed to have little direction as a young man, growing up with various members of his family after his father died and his mother left him when he was just eight years old. After spending four years in the French army, Tanguy returned to Paris, the city of his birth, and worked several jobs. Tanguy made the decision to pursue art when he was inspired by one of Giorgio de Chirico's Surrealist paintings. Tanguy was introduced to members of the Surrealist movement by Jacques Prévert, a surrealist writer whom he had met in the army, and was quickly taken under the wing of Surrealist leader André Breton. Tanguy joined the French movement, and his work was exhibited in 1927 in his first one-man show. Sigmund Freud influenced his paintings, like many of his colleagues. Tanguy aspired to portray fantasy-like scenes of absurd and imagined figures. He painted with exceptional precision, executing canvases filled with small, detailed objects on broad, cloud-like expanses. By painting these landscapes he felt he was achieving a method of recording the activity of the unconscious. Tanguy married Kay Sage, an American Surrealist, and moved to the United States in 1940. His work was shown in New York galleries. In particular, he was included in Pierre Matisse's show "Artists in Exile". Matisse was the son of French Impressionist Henri Matisse, and a childhood friend of Tanguy. This landmark show established the work of artists from the European continent among American collectors and critics. Following the end of the Second World War, Tanguy enjoyed considerable fame and acclaim, with one-man exhibitions in Rome, Paris, and Milan.

We found the trick to using this is to make sure you use enough for the self leveling to take effect. Wish there was some way to get a smooth finish on the short counter-type back splash. Likely should have put down protection on counter and flooded back splash liberally prior to coating counter top. Caution: A thicker coat will require a longer curing time. Be prepared to be without your counter tops for longer than it says in order for them to completely harden.

I have used this product on my glass etchings. It gives them a nice look. It's great on wedding goblets. This really brings out the design.

I apply these paints in small plastic bottles and add a metal tip to outline and apply. The only thing I dislike is you never know which color will change to a different color after baking. Mostly I use the Pebeo 150. I find they do not change color after baking. Another problem is they do not have it in white,first time I used what looked like white, it turned ivory and even looked more yellow than ivory. I just wish there were more art suppliers who carry it. Most of the time I order it.
