From separate quarters to a rare dual show
Wellesley College hangs works of Kay Sage, Yves Tanguy side by side
American artist Kay Sage turned from painting traditional landscapes to Surrealist ones after seeing the work ”I Am Waiting For You,” by French painter Yves Tanguy, in 1936. The next year, living in Paris, she delved into the imagery of Surrealists. Then, in 1938, she met Tanguy, and within months they were a couple. ”Double Solitaire: The Surreal Worlds of Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy,” a show at the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, examines the work of the two painters.
