Yves Tanguy’s birthday was celebrated at Modernnow.

Yves Tanguy came to painting late (in his early 20s) after a work by Giorgio de Chirico fired his imagination and changed his destiny. He taught himself to paint and, at the urging of his friend André Breton, became an enthusiastic member of the Parisian Surrealist movement in 1925. Through constant work, Tanguy quickly gained assurance as a painter, and recognition for his faintly sinister – and purely Surrealistic – landscapes executed in muted colors and filled with mysterious objects.

Located in the vibrant artist community of Studioplex and adjacent to the impecable Serpas Restaurant, Modern Now Gallery is a rare find in the Atlanta Art Scene. Their collection ranges from thousands of rare art & architecture antiquarian books (including hard to find journals) to a wide range of artworks that span from local fringe to established Atlantan artists as well as a wide range of Modern Masters; that price from the affordably decorative to the impossibly rare. If you are visiting Atlanta or are a member of the community, you should stop by and experience the culture and the fresh perspective they have of contextualizing the old with the new, the established with the fresh, and the proven with the experimental.
