MAN RAY (American / 1890-1967)

Man Ray was born Emmanuel Radnitzky in Philadelphia, and was a leading figure in both the Dada and Surrealist movements. In 1921, declaring “Dada cannot live in New York”, Man Ray moved to Paris, settling in Montparnasse, where he fell in love with the famous Kiki de Montparnasse (real name, Alice Prin), and lived for much of his life, at the centre of the Surrealist movement. Man Ray is best-known as a photographer, but also worked in other mediums, especially lithography. We have both lithographs and photogravure prints by Man Ray. His epitaph in the Montparnasse cemetery reads, “Unconcerned, but not indifferent.”
