"Man Ray on Paper is an exhibition of photographs, prints, drawings, and portfolios featuring the artist's earliest work along with examples from his first Parisian period (1921-1940). The Haggerty exhibition brings together works on paper and photographs not often exhibited. Man Ray's earliest work is represented by the pen and ink tondo Vacation Memories, 1907, Study for Dance, 1914, and Reclining Female Nude. Two portfolios, Revolving Doors, 1926 and Electricite, 1931, both produced in Paris, highlight the breadth of Man Ray's artistic achievement."
