Minus the Black Dahlia and George Hodel: ‘Man Ray and Human Equations’

Man Ray

The Washington Post has published an interesting review by Philip Kennicott of an exhibit at the Phillips Collection of Man Ray’s works. And yes, there isn’t a single mention of the ridiculous allegations about Ray, Dr. George Hodel and the Black Dahlia.

All of this was happening in Hollywood, at a time when many of the greatest artists and intellectuals of Europe were languishing there in spectacularly productive pools of ennui. The opening party for Man Ray’s first Shakespearean Equations exhibition included among its guests Igor Stravinsky, Aldous Huxley, Luis Bunuel and Jean Renoir, plus assorted Americans of significant stature.

  1. ‘…assorted Americans of significant stature.’ Ha, could be the title of an American corollary to Strachey’s Eminent Victorians. Could be delicious.
