Dorothea Tanning - Eine kleine nachtmusik


I love this painting. The last time I saw it, a couple of years ago probably, I sat in front of it for about half an hour and could hardly bear to leave it. There are dozens - hundreds probably - of interpretations of it, and I have no real idea what it's about. But there's an eeriness about it, an unsettling air, which is fascinating. Are they little girls in control or in danger? It's hard to say. And how much of life is similarly confusing?
