Man Ray’s Portrait of Peggy Guggenheim

Frederique van Reij

In 1924 Man Ray took one of his most famous photographs: a portrait of the young, rich American heiress and later art collector Peggy Guggenheim. The Rijksmuseum holds one of the few original prints. This volume brings together for the first time all the known prints and variants of this portrait and discusses how the portrait came to be taken. Frederique van Reij also looks at the photograph in relation to the costume prints and fashion photographs of the period against the background of the history of fashion photography
