Untitled (Two Hands)

Untitled (Two Hands), 1966 by Man Ray is an original lithograph signed in pencil in the lower right margin, and numbered in the lower left margin from the edition of 125.  The image size is 16 1/2 x 13 inches.  The paper size is 25 1/2 x 22 inches.  The frame size is 32 1/4 x 28 1/4 inches.  Published by Gemini G.E.L., Los Angeles. Gemini 20.

This Lithograph was made after an original “Rayograph”. Man Ray made his “Rayographs” without a camera by placing objects-such as the thumbtacks, coil of wire, and other circular forms used here-directly on a sheet of photosensitized paper and exposing it to light. Man Ray had photographed everyday objects before, but these unique, visionary images immediately put the photographer on par with the avant-garde painters of the day. Hovering between the abstract and the representational, the rayographs revealed a new way of seeing that delighted the Dadaist poets who championed his work, and that pointed the way to the dreamlike visions of the Surrealist writers and painters who followed.
