About this work
“The Changing Light at Sandover”
© The Estate of James Merrill
Lines from this epic poem accompanied the painting Dionysos SOS (1987-89) in the exhibition "Dorothea Tanning: Murmurs" at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York, organized in collaboration with Alison Jacques Gallery, London (May 11 - June 27, 2015). The show explored echoes of myths and legends in Tanning’s work through poetry, with examples of poems that were especially meaningful to the artist.
