Yves Tanguy “Promontory Palace” (Palais promontoire) at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice in Italy

Tanguy, Promontory Palace
Painting - Oil, Graphite on Canvas (73 x 60 cm) 1931

This painting is part of the series of landscapes titled “Les coulées”, painted by Tanguy after his trip to Africa in 1930.

“Les Coulées” (flowing forms) is a term evoking their semi-liquid state as seen in this picture.

In this work, grey and beige dominate except for the blue fireplace in the foreground.

The landscape and the objects are melting, spreading out, literally flowing.

We can see some forms that could be human, also in the process of deformation and liquefaction.
