Born in 1890, Man Ray (aka Emmanuel Radnitzky) was an American visual artist who spent most of his career in France. Considered a pioneer of the Surrealist movement, he was best known for his photography but considered himself a painter above all. He was also known for his photograms pictures made with photographic materials but without a camera which he dubbed rayographs. His general love for art shines through in the Man Ray Chess Set (1920), with abstract geometric chess pieces designed by the man himself the knight was inspired by a violin in his studio and matching board later devised by a specialty game manufacturer. Pieces are CNC-milled from FSC-certified beech, then carefully finished by hand. The board, also in beech, is carefully crafted and finished to match the pieces. This is the authentic Man Ray Chess Set, produced under license with the Man Ray Trust. Made in Germany. Set includes pieces and board.
