Man Ray (1890-1976), was an American artist who lived most of his life in Paris. Perhaos best described simply as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. Best known in the art world for his avant garde photography, Man Ray produced major works in a variety of media and considered himself a painter above all. He was also a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. He is noted for his photographs, which he renamed “rayographs” after himself.
In 1999, ARTnews magazine named him one of the 25 most influential artists of the 20th century, citing his groundbreaking photography as well as “his explorations of film, painting, collage, assemblage, and prototypes of what would eventually be called performance art and conceptual art”. From 1940-1951 he lived in Los Angeles but returned to Montparnasse, his “home”. “I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive. I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence”.
