About The Poster: A lovely poster from France in the late 1980's for an exhibition featuring the paintings of Man Ray, the influential and prolific American photographer and painter.
Born Emmanuel Radnitzky, he changed his name in 1909 and became a prominent force of Dada and Surrealism, and the only American to play a significant role in the development of those movements. His visits to Alfred Stieglitz's gallery, 291 introduced him to a wide variety of European contemporary artists, such as Picasso, Rodin, and Braque. Like many other artists of his time, he was also greatly influenced by the avant-garde Armory show in New York City in 1913. His paintings from this period show his fascination with the flatness of Modernism and his interest in the patterns of shapes rather than a realistic rendering of subject matter.
