Two lovers on a couchv2It seems to me that I spent half my life hanging onto the brass rails of my lovers’ beds so that I wouldn’t fall off in the night.

Man Ray

You have to love his name. His real name was Emmanuel Radnitzky. Along with Dali andMagritte (and anyone I’ve forgotten) he is one of the most important surrealists in the early 20th century. He is mostly a photographer. But he went beyond photography or at least used the photograph to reach into the world. Collages. His work is fun. He must have had a ball in Paris. Some of his models are stunningly beautiful. Here is one of my favourite quotes in art. It is from Man Ray. “I have been accused of being a joker. But the most successful art to me involves humor.”
