Letter from Man Ray to Julian Edwin Levi, June 26, 1929

Man Ray

... Some are landmarks not only of art history but of all history — shortly before the stock market crash of 1929, surrealist icon Man Ray is sitting in an American bar in Paris, sketching a self-portrait in a lyrical letter to his friend Julian Edwin Levi: The blue light is creeping over Blvd. Montparnasse and the sparrows are chirping in the trees waiting for a windfall.
