Glass Tears

American, Paris, 1930 - 1932
Gelatin silver print
9 x 11 3/4 in.

The above image has been noted as one of Man Ray's 
most successful and well known works throughout his career. 

The woman pictured in the photograph happens to be a fashion mannequin which is believed to stand as a symbol of Lee Miller, Man Rays lover at the time the photograph was made, of course done during their breakup. There are also many variants of this photograph pictured.
