In 1913 Tsuguharu Fujita left Tokyo for Paris, where he became a fixture in the artist's quarter of Montparnasse and a successful painter. Man Ray arrived seven years later and soon became the celebrated portraitist of Parisian artists during this period. Everyone who was anyone in Paris sat for Man Ray and was assured of a place in the Modernist pantheon because of the association with the famous photographer.
