MAX ERNST: Then I met a young woman in America, or rather in New York, the painter Dorothea Tanning.
And very soon she became my wife.
DOROTHEA TANNING: It was around Christmas in 1942, when Max rang my doorbell.
He was choosing pictures for the Peggy Guggenheim gallery, for a show to be called "Thirty Women."
On an easel was my self-portrait, not quite finished.
