Born in Paris, Yves Tanguy became one of the leading artists of a movement called Surrealism, depictions that suggested other-worldliness and eerie circumstances. Tanguy's most characteristic works are painted in a style reminiscent of Salvadore Dalí, but his imagery is highly distinctive, featuring strange landscapes in which amorphous objects proliferate in a haunted dream world. His paintings often had indefinable inhabitants, casting long shadows across a landscape, in a meticulously detaile (showing 500 of 2691 characters).
