My nerve may be roated into the tragic, but theit extremities have a constant laugh.
Dorothea Tanning was born in 1912 in Galesburg (Illinois, United States). She first did artistic studies and stopped them when she settled down in New York in 1935. She creates advertising drawings. Dorothea Tanning has a real "revelation" while she discovers the exhibition « fantastic Art, Dada and surrealism » organized at the Moma in 1936. She is bound with the surrealists exiled in the United . . .

Stamp by Dorothéa Tanning
The publication of a postal stamp is often a homage paid by a nation to a place, an event, a remarkable cause or a character which count. The painters and other artists do not escape from this rule. Some are however "forgotten" of postal art. Here, gathered below (French or foreign), emitted stamps (206) or simple studies of stamp (224) in homage to the artists represented on our website. The first French stamp was emitted in 1849, England preceded us by ten years. There is often a share of voyage in this small form of shape paper. The stamp circulates, sails, flies away, it makes dream, then dream a little. M.C.
When the stamp is really emitted, the artist name is preceded of an asterisk (*).
