Description: Milan: Skira, 2011. 28cm., hardcover, 325pp. illus. English text. Exhibition held at Museo d’Arte in Lugano. Summary: Inspired by an informal and non rhetorical autobiography, the catalogue is divided into three main sections: the formative years (to 1921), which Man Ray spent between New York and Ridgefield in New Jersey; the Paris period (1921-1940), which the artist shared with some of the greatest artists of the twentieth century; the period the artist spent between Hollywood and Paris (1940-1976) • Comparison is made with the works of some of the most important artists of the twentieth century, such as Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Constantin Brancusi, Jean Arp, and Francis Picabia • The book’s chronological layout includes chapters dealing with the themes permeating Man Ray’s work throughout the years, such as his passion for chess, the relationship between reality and illusion, the mask, and experimental photography and film. All this offers the reader a clear image of the context in which Man Ray’s works were created and the ideas which he shared with his contemporaries.
