Yves Tanguy


French painter Yves Tanguy was a surrealist. Tanguy spent a short time in the merchant navy and the Army. During this time, he became friends with Jacques Prévert. After his military service he returned to Paris working odd jobs. It was here that he saw a painting by Giorgio de Chirico. He was so deeply touched and impressed with this piece of work, that he decided to become a painter himself despite not having any formal training.
