The Point: Where does the background of photos for sale come from, and what are the major pieces?
Emmanuelle de L’Ecotais: This is the collection of Edmonde and Lucien Treillard. Lucien was Man Ray’s collaborator from 1960 until his death in 1976, then he continued to promote the work of the photographer alongside his widow Juliet Man Ray, until her death in 1991. The important pieces are numerous, but let us quote the portrait of Marcel Duchamp in Rrose Sélavy, the Self-portrait of Man Ray, the objects Voilà and Pêchage, but also the few spectacular prints by their format (Lee Miller, André Breton, Magnolia, Lys calla solarized) which are extremely rare, even if they are late (1960). Without forgetting of course the famous Violon d’Ingres.
