Man Ray letters and album, 1922-1976.

Letters to Man Ray are from celebrated Dada and Surrealist artists and authors, and document the dynamic artistic and literary scenes of the immediate pre- and post-World War II period in the United States. An album of predominately handwritten manuscripts supplements the letters by offering Man Ray's thoughts on a range of artistic issues.
