Lot description
Man Ray, Fashion Designer Mainbocher, c. 1935. Vintage gelatin silver print, 9 x 7 in. (22.9 x 17.8 cm). Inscribed.

Man Ray was born Emmanuel Radnitsky in Philadelphia of Russian Jewish immigrant parents. He assumed the name Man Ray in his early twenties. His close friendship with Marcel Duchamp, spanning fifty-five years, influenced their respective work and resulted in collaborative creative endeavors. Encouraged by Duchamp, May Ray moved to Paris in 1921, and with the exception of ten years in Hollywood during World War II, he spent the rest of his life there. He joined the Parisian Dada group and then the Surrealists. Possessing an endlessly fertile imagination, Man Ray continued to create new and startling artworks throughout his long career. Always at the forefront of the avant garde, he experimented with every conceivable medium, invented a number of his own and influenced several generations of artists. His major contributions fall into the categories of painting, sculpture and photography, including film. Man Ray had innumerable one-man shows. He died in Paris at age 86 and since then there have been major retrospectives of his work world-wide.
