One was a famous artist, the other an ardent collector of photography, a curator and author. Man Ray (1890-1976) and L. Fritz Gruber (1908-2005) nurtured professional and personal contact for more than two decades. Gruber was involved in projects such as Man Rays solo exhibition at photokina and the book "Man Ray Portraits". From many years working together and extensive knowledge of Man Rays work, Gruber and his wife Renate put together a multiform collection that has become the basis of this book. In addition to Man Rays photographs, sculptural work and objects, this book includes extensive correspondence, numerous monographs, catalogues and reviews. Against this backdrop a personal picture emerges of Grubers commitment to the work of the American artist. This volume provides many new insights, particularly into the artists last creative years.
