MAN RAY, . He is mostly known for his innovation in photography, with light and solarization. Many people do not know that in the art world he was the first to wrap objects with cords in a public place. Man Ray had the idea to take a canvas and wrap a sewing machine and an umbrella tied together with cord--this happened in the 1920's long before anyone else had done it!!! And in my opinion, Man Ray was one of the most versatile artists of the 20th century, but his method of creation was not in line with the commercial establishment. No, he didn't have a single style. He invented many styles. He was always in search of something new, "in an epoch where the merchants of art oblige the artist to paint in a recognized uniform manner so the public can easily recognize it, Man Ray, the incorruptible, always created anti-conformist work," G. Di San Lazzaro, a renowned art critic and historian in Paris in the mid 20th century.
