Man Ray’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
Man Ray was born in the Year of the Tiger. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Tiger are authoritative, self-possessed, have strong leadership qualities, are charming, ambitious, courageous, warm-hearted, highly seductive, moody, intense, and they’re ready to pounce at any time. Compatible with Horse or Dog.
Most famous for his paintings and works of fashion photography, this twentieth-century visual artist is associated with both Surrealism and Dadaism. His most famous works include Noire et Blanche (a 1926 photograph); The Misunderstood (a 1938 painting); and L'Etoile de Mer (a 1928 experimental art film).
After taking several classes each at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design, he began his artistic training in earnest at the Ferrer School (also called the New York City Modern School).
In the late 1990s, ARTnews magazine included Ray on a list of the Twentieth Century's Twenty-Five Most Influential Artists.
