While recently an iconic Man Ray print ( Le Violon d’Ingres) sold for $12.4 million at Christie’s, nearly tripling the record for the most expensive photograph ever sold at auction, our vintage print from an anonymous photographer, produced for Underwood& Underwood in the same time period, is available at an easier affordable price.
The tattoos on the back of the model showing a mouse, a cat and a dog are of symbolic character and we wonder, whether the model and photographer were either aware of the Man Ray image, or whether it was just a coincidence, that the pose of the model, styling and visual appeal show such a similar approach.

Beautiful etching by one of the grand seigneurs of the art world.
The print is an artist proof (size~80x60cm), signed, numbered XXV/ XXV e.a, titled and dated in pencil by the artist. It was acquired on January 17, 1995 at Galerie Lelong in Paris, France and is in very good condition.
