This volume on Man Ray (1890-1976), written in collaboration with the artist himself, chronicles and thoughtfully critiques the artist's diverse and definitive contributions to the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. The thorough documentation of the artist's development is complimented by writer Arturo Schwarz, whose insights consider the work's intrinsic relationship to psychological theories like the unconscious, alchemy, and archaic sources of the imagination. 520 illustrations throughout, 40 in colour.
