The Rayograph offered here also has a significant exhibition history: Man Ray included it in his own 1962 retrospective exhibition at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. Shortly thereafter, it was purchased by the pioneering photography collector Arnold Crane, who featured it in at least three exhibitions of Man Ray’s work in the 1970s, including ones at the Milwaukee Art Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Finally, it has been shown in three exhibitions devoted to Henry Buhl’s Collection.
Sotheby’s wishes to thank Man Ray authority Steven Manford for his assistance in researching this photograph.
