Item description for Man Ray: Women by Valerio Deho...
Man Ray found the surreal in the commonplace, particularly in the female form, and this has made his photography some of the worlds most accessible and recognizable: his ubiquitous La Violin dIngres creates a cello from a womans torso with the addition of curliqued vents inked on her sides; his classic image of shining cinematic tears glistening on a powdered cheek has been tucked into mirror frames all over the world. This collection of more than 130 pictures dated between 1920 and 1950 covers not only Rays work as one of the worlds leading avant-garde artists--he was a tireless experimenter who participated in the Cubist, Dadaist and Surrealist art movements--but also his commercial work. It includes fashion photography and advertising images; portraits of many artists, including Marcel Proust, Marcel Duchamp and Andr Breton; and a portfolio of 26 Femmes. Art dealer Giorgio Marconi, who met May Ray in 1966 in Milan, contributes an insightful interview.

Reviews - What do customers think about Man Ray: Women?
High Art Aug 12, 2009
Many photographers which shoot women are thinking that photos of beautiful women or may be nude women will be winning. But I think that it is quite the contrary. There are many such photos but very micro amount of them is high art in this sphere. Man Ray: Women are the high art. And nude photos are not photos for especially showing undressed women. This photos as and others appear works of art with full harmony all image.
