Nine years before the Museum of Modern Art opened in New York, the Société Anonyme, which Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp cofounded with collector Katherine Dreier in 1920, organized exhibitions of works by contemporary masters. Man Ray reluctantly served as photographer for the society, photographing affiliated artists as he did here in a double portrait of Duchamp and the American painter Joseph Stella. Man Ray craftily included himself in the picture by hanging his photograph Woman Smoking a Cigaretteabove their heads.
