"A long time ago I said that I want to seduce by means of imperceptible passages from one reality to another. The viewer is caught in a net from which there is no escape save by going through the whole picture until he comes to the exit. My wish: to make a trap (picture) with no exit at all either for you or for me."

–from Between Lives: An Artist and Her World. New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 2001, pp. 326-327.

Dorothea Tanning died on January 31, 2012 in New York City.
