Man Ray Revolving Doors Handkerchief
- $21.60 for Members
This handkerchief is based on collages made in New York from 1916–17, that first appeared at the Daniel Gallery in 1919. Hinged on a revolving stand, the Revolving Doors prints produced an impressive optical effect as they rotated. The collages were again displayed in 1926, when a series of 105 prints were made. This set is Revolving Doors IX (Mélanger de Béton). This 100% fine cotton handkerchief uses the second print of the set, with the blue shape reminiscent of the lute in Man Ray's collage Involute.
Born Emmanuel Radinski in 1890, Man Ray became a key contributor in the Dada and Surrealist movements. Man Ray spent the 1920's in Paris, where following his meeting with Marcel Duchamp worked as part of the surrealist group and continued his dada activities. His main income came from fashion and portrait photography, which allowed him to pursue other creative ventures on the side including painting, collages and creating objects.
