There is this famous picture of the woman violin, … Kiki the muse of the photographer

Man Ray is also a painter, a draughtsman, a creator of objects and a film maker. It is this lesser known work that the Angladon Museum has chosen to offer to the public. About a hundred works belonging to a private collection, paintings and drawings by Man Ray, but also rayograms revealing the magic of objects simply placed on a sensitive film, and other experimental pieces, notably his first two films. These works highlight the multiple and surprising facets of the work of a prolific artist. From the temptation of Dada with Marcel Duchamp to the adventure of free books with Paul Éluard; from the “disturbing strangeness” cultivated by the surrealist community to its flowering of diverted, dreamed, reinvented objects, it is a quest for freedom and pleasure that has irrigated his creation.

And if you don’t already know him, run to discover this little jewel of the Papal city that is the Angladon Museum.
