  • Artist: MAN RAY
  • Print Title: Violon D'Ingres
  • Man Ray's most famous photographic image, Inspired by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres's La Grande Baigneuse, Ray used Kiki de Montparnasse wearing a turban as a model for this piece. Ingres's well-known passion for the violin created the colloquialism in French, 'violon d'Ingres', meaning a hobby. Many describe Le Violon d'Ingres as a visual pun, depicting his muse, Kiki, as Ray's 'violon d'Ingres.'

  • Printing Date: 1933
  • Printed in France
  • Image size approx. 7.25 x 9.25 inches
