Man Ray, American artist by Neil Baldwin( Book )

34 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 1,475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Man Ray is the quintessential modernist figure - painter, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker, poet, and philosopher. One of the most fascinating of the Surrealists who transformed the Paris art world during the 1920s, Man Ray was an enigma - a Dadaist who revered the Old Masters, an anarchist pursued by wealthy patrons. Driven to make his mark in as many art forms as possible, he struggled bitterly to win acceptance as a painter even as his skill as a photographer brought him world wide fame. Man Ray came to know personalities such as Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, Max Ernst, and Coco Chanel, and he photographed virtually every important figure in the arts on both sides of the Atlantic." "Written with the close cooperation of his widow, Juliet, Man Ray is the definitive story of the life and times of one of the greatest modern artists, a man whose influence on culture resonates even today."--Jacket

"Bishops and archbishops, top footballers, politicians and actors - they all count him as their friend. Prime ministers and senior royals stop and listen to his opinions. He's got an honorary degree and his very own football club. He has even been on TV. But who is Neil Baldwin? As a boy in a working-class part of the Potteries in the fifties and sixties, the education system wrote him off. But Neil, who believes you can just "get things by asking for them", knows his late Mum wanted him to have a happy life, and it's his duty to her to have one. So he does. At Keele University, they hold regular celebrations and services for the decades he's been a friend to the students, academics and vice-chancellors; but he's never been a student, a teacher, or had any formal connection with the place. At Stoke City Football Club, he's "more famous than the players." He's even got a dialogue going with the queen - though that one's still a little one-sided. This is the inspiring, moving and at times hysterically funny story of Neil Baldwin's marvellous life"--Publisher's description for original book
