Little, Brown, 1998 - Biography & Autobiography - 319 pages
Man Ray's extraordinary autobiography, now in a lavishly illustrated paperback edition, reveals the entertaining life and times of this remarkable artist.
Legendary photographer, painter, creator of objects, and filmmaker, Man Ray was one of the most versatile and inventive artists of this century. From Greenwich Village to Paris to Hollywood and back to Paris, Man Ray figured prominently in the avant-garde, Dada, and Surrealist movements. Self Portrait is Man Ray's extremely frank autobiography, long unavailable in English. This new edition, now available for the first time in paperback, is fully illustrated with 250 pictures, in color and black and white. Many of these pictures had never before been published; others have become part of popular culture, such as The Gift, an iron studded with tacks, and The Lovers, his huge painting of lips floating in the Paris sky.
