Lot Essay

Kay Sage counted Yves Tanguy and his fellow Surrealist Giorgio de Chirico among her greatest early inspirations, and by the time she and Tanguy married in 1940, Sage was successfully incorporating Surrealism's mysterious mood, polished finish and dreamlike imagery into her own work. In No Wind, No Birds, the scaffolding, covered in boldly colored drapery, creates a dramatic air of mystery that finds a close parallel to the work of her husband as well as that of Salvador Dali and Max Ernst.
