Best described as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist art movements.

Guarantee: Always 100% Complete Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed!This is an authentic vintage (NOT a modern reprint) 1937 sheet fed photogravure plate produced from the original negative/print by the internationally renown photographer Man Ray. Thenegative was originally made by Man Ray in 1927 and is one of his mostfamous images. It is an example of a photographic technique known assolarisation. Man Ray was the first significant artist to perfect thisdarkroom technique. The procedure involves a partial reversal of thenegative so that a semi-positive film results. The photographs areusually taken on a black background, which becomes white as the resultof the reversal but, as in this case of this image, can be done theother way around with a white background which then is rendered black.At the points of srong contrast a brilliant white line is formed. One of the most historically significant photographic artists of the 20th century, Man Ray's iconic images are held in important collections and museums throughout the world. This sheet fed gravure print was originally issued as part of a now scarce, out of print photogravure compilation, engraved and printed in sheet fed gravure by Mana Editions in Paris, France in 1937.

Prints are made bypressing suitable paper heavily down upon the inked copper plate whichhas been intricately etched to varying depths corresponding with theactual tonality of the original negative, This precisely etched platecombined with a fine "honeycomb" screen controls the amount of ink tobe transferred to the paper at any given point in direct proportion tothe variation of tone in the original image. The result is a truecontinuous tone print which combines many qualities of a traditionalsilver based photograph with a tactile feel similar to an etching,engraving or lithograph.Rich in tonal detail, the photogravure process produces delicatelyrendered shades for a look which is unique in the world of photographicprint making. In the early to mid 1900's photogravure was selected(when budgets allowed) for special high quality publishing andportfolio projects, but due to it's significant expense and labor, theprocess is rarely seen today. FromMan Ray and Ruth Bernhard to Brett Weston and Ansel Adams, many of theworld's most renown photographic masters have published their images inthe rich photogravure process.OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU: We don't just want to meet your expectations, we want to exceed them with each and every purchase!
