Catalogue Note

Man Ray’s self-portraits are among his most accomplished, inventive and eternal works. The self-portraits included in this sale date from throughout the course of Man Ray’s career, many prints constituting the only known examples.

Personality. It is the foundation of my teachings. How to be original? Make your own self-portrait. This is the most original thing that you could do. We are all different. (May Ray, interview with Irmeline Lebeer, “Man Ray Fautographe”, L'Art vivant, no. 44 (November 1973), p. 24)
