Organized in collaboration with Dorothea Tanning’s estate and Alison Jacques Gallery, which represents the artist in London, this exhibition of 35 work surveys the dreamlike later output of Tanning (1910-2012). Murmurs (1976), created the year Tanning’s husband Max Ernst died, provides the show’s title and assumes pride of place on the ground floor. The canvas shows a voluptuous woman arching backward into a crescent moon shape, flanked with a mythical gremlin type on one side and cherubic figures on the other. Fluid figuration intersects with pale, brushy passages, blending abstraction and figuration into ethereal images. Climb the gallery’s twisting staircases to see further examples of this style in painting, drawing and watercolor on the upper two floors. And don’t miss the quirky assemblages that show an evolution in Tanning’s Surrealist humor, such as Victory (2005), a piece of burnt toast mounted on black paper.
