Description/

Man Ray’s artistic output in the 1930s was profoundly influenced by his relationship with fellow artist Lee Miller. Though the relationship ended acrimoniously, Miller’s lips became a recurring image in Man Ray’s work and are the subject of his 1975 necklace, ‘Les Amoureux’ in addition to his famous 1931 canvas, ‘A L’heure de l’Observatoire – les Amoureux’. Meant to be worn to the side, they are a lover’s kiss gently placed on the wearer’s neck, an intimate homage to Miller.

 

18k gold removable pendant with pin on reverse (to be worn as a brooch) on torque.


Man Ray

designer

Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky) 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 pioneering 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.
