First Dorothea Tanning exhibition in Paris at Galerie Furstenburg. Travels in Italy. Acquisition, with Max Ernst, of a farmhouse in Huismes, Indre et Loire, an area often called the garden of France. Work and pleasure in this house will occupy most of the next ten years.

An exhibition in London, Dorothea Tanning, at the Arthur Jeffress Gallery. A new period in her painting, sometimes referred to as prismatic, begins with Le Mal Oublié (The Ill Forgotten). Begins long association with Georges Visat, master etcher, and the etching process.

Dorothea Tanning, Huismes, France
Once more in Sedona. Performs in Hans Richter’s film, 8 x 8
L'Imposteur mérovingien (The Merovingian Imposter)
Tempête en jaune (Tempest in Yellow)
Here it must be said that all efforts to preserve Max Ernst’s American citizenship have failed. The McCarran-Walter Act, a ghoulish piece of legislation enacted by the American congress during the McCarthy era is directed against foreign-born Americans. In October Dorothea Tanning returns, with Max Ernst, to France.
Midi et demi (Half Past Noon)
À mi-voix (Whispers)
Move to 58, rue Mathurin Régnier, an address difficult of pronunciation for Dorothea in taxicabs. Divides time between Paris and Huismes studios.
