Paintings by Yves Tanguy

Yves Tanguy (1900 – 1955) was a French Surrealist painter. His early life and career was spent in service to the military. This changed in 1923 when Tanguy discovered Giorgio de Chirico’s artwork which inspired him to become a painter. Although he did not have any formal training, Tanguy matured quickly as an artist. In 1927, he exhibited his first works at the Galerie Surréaliste in Paris and continued to show his paintings in Surrealist galleries throughout his life.
