Tanguy, Yves (French painter, 1900-1955)

Note: Tanguy was self-taught and joined the Surrealists in 1925. His works consistently featured flat landscapes that resembled seaside or submarine spaces covered with rock and sand formations. Highly influential, Tanguy practiced a pure form of Automatism, spontaneous work not under conscious control. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) launched a major retrospective of his work in 1955.
