Man Ray (F. & S. II.148) is a signed screen print made by the renowned Pop artist, Andy Warhol, in 1974. Coming in an edition size of 100, the print shows a portrait of Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky) who was an American modern artist best remembered for his contributions to the Dada and Surrealist movements. Warhol renders Man Ray in his signature Pop Art style, characterised by his use of the screen printing technique and application of bright and bold colours. Set against a vibrant red backdrop, Man Ray is captured smoking nonchalantly and looking to the left of the composition.
Warhol knew Man Ray personally and was introduced to him by the Italian art dealer Luciano Anselmino. The portrait was produced shortly before Man Ray died in 1976 and memorialises him as a Pop Art icon. Warhol was interested in the way people were remembered after their death and the role art could play in shaping one’s memory and perception of someone.
Man Ray (F. & S. II.148) was created for an exhibition of Warhol’s work in 1974 at the Galleria Il Fauno in Milan, Italy. Warhol produced many portraits of celebrities and socialites. As well as accepting commissions, Warhol also chose particular figures that he admired to paint. Warhol cites Man Ray as having had a tremendous influence on his own artistic development and the artist’s admiration shines through in this elegant portrait.
