An almost year-long bout with sciatica diminishes Dorothea Tanning’s studio activity. Finishes Chiens de Cythère (Dogs of Cythera) on canvas tacked to the rue de Lille dining room wall. In Huismes more visits by, among others, Georges Bataille, Jean Arp, Dominique de Menil. November assassination of President John F. Kennedy devastates all.

Move from Huismes to Seillans, a hilltop village in Provence. The house, an ex-hotel called, unbelievably, La Dolce Vita, has plenty of rooms to paint in.
