really liked it

Recommended for: modern art / photography enthusiasts

I've been researching modern art lately, so when I saw this book at the public library on a display table, I felt it was kismet. One of my particular interests are the Dadaists, and this book gives good details about the Parisian scene, and the relationship between Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp. I like seeing how their work influenced the other with various readymades and assemblages. The biography section was a bit skimpy - I would have liked more detail - but the plates were great, showing the breadth and quality of his work. I particularly liked the section and selections of rayographs.
