Happy Birthday, Kay Sage

Happy Birthday, Katherine Linn Sage (June 25, 1898 – January 8, 1963)

She was known as Kay Sage, the American Surrealist artist and poet. Her biographer, Judith D. Suther, wrote in “A House of Her Own: Kay Sage, Solitary Surrealist” –

“I call Kay Sage a Surrealist because her painting resonates with the unsettling paradoxes and hallucinatory qualities prized by André Breton and his group. . . . More fundamentally, I call Sage a Surrealist because her allegiance to the Surrealist identity lies at the heart of her self-image as an artist.”
