About

Invasion de l'espace is an original print by the American artist and exponent of Dadaism Man Ray (Philadelphia 1890 - Paris 1976). This color lithograph on paper, was edited by the French magazine "XXe Siécle", and published on the Panorama 75 - Le réel imaginaire: de la rue à l'espace , number issue XLV, Paris in 1975. An original print, with monogram and title in the stone only, realized by Man Ray specifically for XXe siécle and printed by Desjobert, Paris, 1975. Edited under the direction of the Italian art editor, Gualtieri di San Lazzaro, pseudonym of Giuseppe Antonio Leandro Papa, (1904 - 1974) and founder of the review XX siécle. Magic and delicate artwork in the perfect Man Ray's style, standing out for the high definition of colors and shapes In excellent conditions, except for a light and usual yellowing of the paper on the edges (signs of the time). Man Ray (Philadelphia, 27 August 1890 – 18 November 1976) Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky) was a famous American filmmaker, painter, photographer. Man Ray's career is distinctive above all for the success he achieved in both the United States and Europe. First maturing in the center of American modernism in the 1910s, he made Paris his home in the 1920s and 1930s, and in the 1940s he crossed the Atlantic once again, spending periods in New York and Hollywood. His art spanned painting, sculpture, film, prints and poetry, and in his long career he worked in styles influenced by Cubism, Futurism, Dada and Surrealism. He also successfully navigated the worlds of commercial and fine art, and came to be a sought-after fashion photographer. He is perhaps most remembered for his photographs of the inter-war years, in particular the camera-less pictures he called 'Rayographs', but he always regarded himself first and foremost as a painter. Although he matured as an abstract painter, Man Ray eventually disregarded the traditional superiority painting held over photography and happily moved between different forms. Dada and Surrealism were important in encouraging this attitude; they also persuaded him that the idea motivating a work of art was more important than the work of art itself. André Breton once described Man Ray as a 'pre-Surrealist', something which accurately describes the artist's natural affinity for the style. Even before the movement had coalesced, in the mid 1920s, his work, influenced by Marcel Duchamp, had Surrealist undertones, and he would continue to draw on the movement's ideas throughout his life. His work has ultimately been very important in popularizing Surrealism.
