Glass tears

Man Ray

Glass tears

Man Ray
  • Original Title: Les Larmes
  • Date: 1932
  • Style: Dada
  • Genre: photo
  • Media: photography

Looking almost like a film still, this cropped photograph demonstrates Man Ray's interest in cinematic narrative. The model's eyes and mascara-coated lashes are looking upward, invoking the viewers to wonder where she's looking and what is the source of her distress. The piece was created soon after the artist's break-up with his assistant and lover, Lee Miller. Ray created multiple works in an attempt to "break her up" as a revenge on a lover who left him (similar to Indestructible Object).
The model is an unnamed can-can dancer.
