*Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky; August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976) was an American visual artist who spent most of his career in Paris. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. He produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. He was best known for his photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer. Man Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, which he called "rayographs" in reference to himself. A pioneer in painting, film, and collage, Man Ray is best known for his black-and-white photographs. His Larmes (Tears) (1930–1932) is a hallmark example of his imaginative photographs, featuring a woman with glass droplets placed on her face which resemble tears. “My works were designed to amuse, annoy, bewilder, mystify and inspire reflection,” he once stated.
