Man Ray Portraits: Celebrity connections

Published 1 February 2013

Before heading to the National Portrait Gallery's Man Ray Portraits exhibition discover the weird and wonderful connections between his most famous subjects.

Man Ray lived in Paris from 1921 to 1940 and during this time he made friends with many of the world’s leading artists, intellectuals and authors. Paris was the centre of the artistic world during this era and attracted the cultural elite such as Picasso, Hemmingway and Max Ernst which in turn created a giant network of talented individuals. Man Ray photographed many of these personalities over the course of his career and you can see how their lives interlinked below. The Man Ray Portraits Exhibition is on until the 27 May and you can get 50% off with a National Art Pass.
