Bronia Perlmutter by Man Ray

Man Ray :: Untitled. Brogna Perlmutter (Bronia Perlmutter), Paris, 1924 | src NGA [National Gallery of Australia]

On December 1924 Francis Picabia asked Bronia to participate in a production, Ciné Sketch, that he and René Clair were putting on after the ballet on New Year’s Eve. Bronia agreed, and she and Marcel Duchamp appeared nude—Duchamp did have a strategically placed fig leaf—in a living tabloid of Lucas Cranach’s Adam and Eve, which Man Ray photographed. This photograph most probably belongs to that series.
