Tanguy Calder: Between Surrealism and AbstractionExhibition

Tanguy Calder: Between Surrealism and Abstraction

"We had gotten to know the Tanguys quite well… as we found them pleasant we had them out to Roxbury. They liked the country around our place very much, and they bought a house in Woodbury."
— Alexander Calder

"Of course there is a Paris one always misses. Still, Woodbury suits me perfectly… there is more freedom—more room in this country. That was why I came here."
— Tanguy
