Extremely Rare Collection Of Man Ray Contact Prints On View At Atlas Gallery In London

LONDON.- An extremely rare collection of Man Ray contact prints from a private collection is on display at ATLAS Gallery, including some of the artist's most celebrated images alongside rarely seen portraits of Hemingway, Picasso, Braque and James Joyce. Scheduled in tandem with the Man Ray retrospective at the National Portrait Gallery, this extensive collection of approximately 150 prints gives an unedited view of the Man Ray archive. Many prints are printed full frame, showing untouched versions of more recognisable works, giving a wonderfully raw insight into the work of the 20th Century's most celebrated Surrealist photographer. ATLAS Gallery is displaying a selection of 45 works of varying sizes, chosen to represent the best of the collection.
