In her own words...
Women artists. There is no such thing — or person. It’s just as much a contradiction in terms as “man artist” or “elephant artist.” You may be a woman and you may be an artist; but the one is a given and the other is you.
— from interview with Carlo McCormick, "Dorothea Tanning," BOMB 33, (Fall 1990), pp. 38, 40.
