We’ve teamed up with Tate Modern to offer all Stylist readers 2-for-1 advance tickets to the Dorothea Tanning exhibition, which is running from 27 Feb – 9 June 2019.

This is the first large-scale exhibition of Dorothea Tanning’s work for 25 years. It brings together works from her seven-decade career – from enigmatic paintings to uncanny sculptures.

Tanning wanted to depict ‘unknown but knowable states’: to suggest there was more to life than meets the eye. She first encountered surrealism in New York in the 1930s. In the 1940s, her powerful self-portrait Birthday 1942 attracted the attention of fellow artist Max Ernst – they married in 1946. Her work from this time combines the familiar with the strange, exploring desire and sexuality.
