Man Ray: Prophet of the Avant-Garde

Photographer, painter, filmmaker, poet, essayist, and philosopher, Man Ray was an extraordinary man with extraordinary talents. One of the primary leaders of the American modernist movement, Ray became acquainted with artists Alfred Stieglitz and Marcel Duchamp, joined the avant-garde, conceived Dada as a form of artistic anarchy, and forever changed the course of American art. Stuart traces the artist from his Jewish roots and the remarkable legacy of his early beginnings in New York to his distinctive achievements in Paris, and finally considers the impact of his work on future generations.
