Introduction
Tanning was inspired to become a painter after viewing the MoMA Surrealism and Dada exhibit in 1936-1937, and eventually became associated with the group of New York expatriate Surrealists. In 1946, two years after her first solo exhibition, she married painter Max Ernst, staying with him in Europe until his death in 1976, whereupon she returned to New York City. She has since remained active as an illustrator and a scenographer.
