Dr. Arthur Brandt began his quest to create a collection devoted to Dada and Surrealism following a chance encounter with Marcel Duchamp, over a game of chess in a Manhattan park in 1955. The New York collector spent the next four decades passionately acquiring paintings, drawings, collages, objects and sculpture belonging to the Dada and Surrealist movements. Here, Sotheby’s Andrew Strauss, world authority on Man Ray and co-author of the Man Ray catalogue raisonné, discusses his personal highlights from the auction of the collection on 21 October 2017 in Paris.
