  • Regular price £22.00


Born Emmanuel Radinski in 1890, Man Ray became a key contibutor in the Dada and Surrealist movements. Man Ray spent the 1920s in Paris, where following his meeting with Marcel Duchamp, worked as part of the surrealist group and continued his dada activities. His main income came from fashion and portrait photography, which allowed him to pursue other creative ventures on the side including painting, collages and creating objects.

'Revolving Doors II (Longue Distance)' is based on collages made in New York from 1916-1917. Their first appearance was at the Daniel Gallery in 1919. Hinged on a revolving stand, the prints produced an impressive optical effect as they rotated. The collages were again displayed in 1926, when a series of 105 prints were made, of which this set is number two. The second print of the set has been used, with the blue shape reminiscent of the lute in Man Ray's collage 'Involute'.

Materials: Digital print on 100% fine cotton. Cold wash only. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry.
