Catalogue Note

In 1966 Dorothea Tanning was part of a group of artists who took part in a ground-breaking exhibition at Galerie Nidrecourt, Paris, titled Kamagraphies. The group comprised, amongst others, of her husband Max Ernst, and the Belgian surrealists Marcel Delmotte and René Magritte. The exhibition showcased a new form of artistic expression which the artists termed Kamagraphie – the idea being that, each artist would paint a unique work on board, called the Kama-Mère, and from that take a limited edition of prints executed through oil painting directly from the original ‘mother’ work. The present work, the original Kama-Mère, is testament to Tanning’s contribution to Surrealism and its artistic evolution.
