Yves Tanguy “I Await You (Je vous attends),” 1934
Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
In honor of romantic love, a story of how two painters found each other.
We typically associate romance with images of sunsets on the beach and candlelit dinners. Not alien landscapes.
But in 1936, it was a mysterious landscape painting that left American artist Kay Sage lovestruck. Created by French surrealist Yves Tanguy, the canvas was filled with odd, organic shapes, rendered with striking intricacy and uncanny realism. Sage recalled later that she “could not tear herself away.”
And in four years, Sage (1898-1963) and Tanguy (1900-1955) would be married, living out the Surrealist belief that there is no such thing as coincidence: That mysterious painting’s title was “I Await You.”
