Man Ray, Peggy Guggenheim, Paul Poiret, Alberta Ferretti … and me

Being an art lover I’m a huge fan of Man Ray‘s work as a painter, photographer and director too. In my living room I have a photographic reproduction of one his masterpieces: Le violon d’Ingres, inspired by the famous Ingres’s paint La Baigneuse de Valpinçon. I love the way Man Ray portrays female figures. His women are curvy, exotic, sensual and often nude. 

 

In 1924 during an exclusive party in Montparnasse he also photographed Peggy Guggenheim, wearing a  gold lame dress and a turban designed by Paul Poiret.
Thinking about that I made:
1. An outfit with an amazing Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti bead embellished mesh dress
2. A selfportrait with Man Ray
3. Some pictures (of me) inspired by Man Ray’s work as a photographer
Hope you enjoy this full, strange post!
Da amante dell’arte sono una grandissima ammiratrice del lavoro di Man Ray come pittore, fotografo e anche regista. In salotto ho una riproduzione di una delle sue foto più famose: Il violino di Ingres, ispirato al celebre Bagnante di Valpinçon di Ingres. Amo il modo in cui Man Ray ritrae le figure femminili. Le sue donne hanno curve generose, soono esotiche, sensuali e spesso nude.
Nel 1924, durante una festa esclusiva a Montparnasse fotografò anche Peggy Guggenheim, che indossava un vestito dorato di lamè con turbante disegnato dallo stilista Paul Poiret.
Pensando a tutto questo ho creato:
1. Un outfit con un bellissimo abito Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti
2. Un autoritratto con Man Ray
3. Alcune foto (autoscatto) ispirate al lavoro fotografico di Man Ray
Spero che questo strano, denso post vi piaccia!
