Yves TANGUY - Print - Etching - Nude (A poem in each Paul Eluard book) 1

Artist: Yves TANGUY (1900-1955)
Title: Nude, 1955
Technique and support: Etching on Japanese paper
Type of work: Print numbered I/IV in pencil at the bottom left. This work is an additional wide-margined edition of illustration 16 of the tribute book to Eluard "a poem in each book" published in 1956 in 120 copies. The work offered here comes from the album called "Album A", Reprinted from the book in 20 copies. Each album contains, like the book, 16 prints (including this work by Yves Tanguy) but they were printed with large margins and unlike the prints in the book, all signed or monogrammed by the artists with the exception of those of Yves Tanguy who died during the Draw. The album we have was the property of the publisher Louis BRODER. It stands out from the others because it is enriched in addition to the 16 large-margined illustrations with many other prints collected by the publisher throughout his collaboration with the artists on this book.
Dimensions: 51 x 33 cm (image 21 x 19 cm)
Condition: Good
Provenance: Genevieve and Jean Paul Kahn collection


Expert's commentYves Tanguy joined the surrealist group in 1925. His mineral landscapes, linear horizons, supple cartilages, fascinating being-objects, dreamlike atmospheres where the unconscious wants to be sovereign are appreciated by Eluard. No wonder then that this print appears in the tribute book to Paul Eluard.

Biography of the artist : Raymond Georges Yves Tanguy, is a French surrealist painter and draftsman, born on January 5 in Paris. Sensitive to painting, it was a canvas by Giorgio De Chirico, seen in a gallery in Paris, that decided him to become a painter. His automatist experiences and his dreamlike landscapes brought him closer to the surrealists, a group he joined in 1925. He held his first personal exhibition in Paris in 1927 and participated from October to November 1933, in the 6th esalon des surindépendants, with the surrealist group. He finally joined the United States in 1940, where he ended his life, acquiring American nationality.
