THE ESSENTIAL MAN RAY
by Ingrid Schaffner
The Essential Series are small bios of important artists. Man Ray, who I used to mix up with Rene Magritte, was one of the originators of Surrealism. You've seen his stuff: a disembodied huge pair of red lips in a blue sky; an iron with nails sticking out of the bottom; iconic surreal fashion photos. He hung with Marcel Duchamp and the dadaists.
Reading this little book about this big man inspired me greatly.
It fires the bohemian punk iconoclastic artistic spirit within.BUY BORROW or BURN?BUY
