For Artist's Sake

Hoping to get to the Getty Center to see the exhibit, Farewell to Surrealism: The Dyn Circle in Mexico. The Dyn Circle comprised of Wolfgang Paalen, (Austrian 1905-1959), Alice Rahon (French, 1904-1987), and Eva Sulzer (Swiss, 1902-1990) along with other artists and writers, who settled in Mexico City during the 1940's for the exploration of pre-Columbian culture. Those 40's, so stylized and the lives of expats are fascinating. Quiero ver más!
