Description

Photographic portrait of Paul Éluard circa 1927, attributed to Man Ray but which was taken by a photo booth.

Handwritten annotation on the back: Éluard (image of the back missing). [Auction catalogue, 2003]. This is from a photo booth—the photo n°7 linked to this description proves it—produced by a machine, consequently without a known author. However, the reprint could have been done by Man Ray because it is indicative of his work. [David Fleiss, 2015]
