NAOMI SAVAGE

Naomi Savage

Naomi Savage, photographer, born June 25, 1927 and died at her home in Princeton, New Jersey, on November 22, 2005.  While still in high school, she took a class in photography at the New School for Social Research with Berenice Abbott.  Some twenty years earlier, Abbott had studied photography in Paris with Man Ray, who was Naomi Savage’s uncle.  In 1946, Savage enrolled in Bennington College, where she studied art and music, but before graduating, left to be an apprentice for Man Ray in Hollywood.  He taught her that photography was above all a creative process, one of many tools that could be used for the purpose of visual expression.  When she returned to New York in 1948, she combined her love of music with her skill in photography by taking portraits of the best known composers of day:  Aaron Copland, John Cage, Virgil Thomson, etc. (over 30 in all).  Throughout her career, she experimented with the medium of photography, continuously inventing new and highly original techniques.  Perhaps her best known work is a series of metal photo engravings (1972) dominating the walls of the LBJ Library in Austin, Texas.  In her later years, she became attracted to the enormous potential of digital imagery, experimenting with various methods to manipulate and enhance color, even using new and unconventional materials for laser printing.  She exhibited widely, most recently at the Montclair Art Museum, and her photographs are included in major institutional collections throughout the United States……………..provided by Francis M. Naumann.

 

Francis M. Naumann is an art historian, who specializes in art of the Dada and Surrealist period.  He has written extensively on the art of Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray.  His New York Dada 1915-23 (1994) is considered the definitive history of the movement, and his “Making Mischief: Dada Invades New York” (1996) is the most comprehensive exhibition on the subject ever assembled.  His doctoral dissertation was on Man Ray’s early years in New York, later published as Conversion to Modernism: The Early Work of Man Ray (2003).  Throughout his years of his research on Man Ray, he met Naomi Savage and, over the years, they became good friends.

MAN RAY

Man Ray

Painter, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker, draftsman…Man Ray has never limited himself to a single medium of artistic expression, tirelessly seeking new possibilities of creation or diversion of existing techniques.  Considering art essentially as a game, he refused to attach himself to a determined style.  Man Ray was born in 1980 in Philadelphia.  In 1913, he discovered at the exhibition The Armory Show in New York European artists like Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia.  With Marcel Duchamp he created and experimented with optical devices to study motion.  He participated in the Dada movement in New york until 1921, when he left for France.  As he arrived in Paris, Marcel Duchamp introduced him to the Parisian artistic scene.  It was the beginning of an intense period of creation: photographs (fashion, portraits, art), exhibitions, films…In the interwar period Paris, Man Ray frequents all the greatest actors of creation, Dadaists, Surrealists, writers, filmmakers, fashion designers…In 1940, Man Ray had to leave France for the United States, where he realized major works like the Shakespearian paintings, etc.  Man Ray returned to Paris in 1951, moved to rue Ferou where he painted, drew, wrote his memoirs and continued to use photographic processes.  Thus begins the edition of his objects “Objects of my affection” first with Marcel Zerbib, then with Arturo Schwarz.  Man Ray died on November 18, 1976 in Paris.  He is buried in the Montparnasse cemetery.   

………………………………………….   excerpt from Man Ray International Association

 

 

Mathematical Object (Anthony) is one of some twenty photographs taken by Man Ray in 1934-35 of mathematical models located in the Institut Poincaré in Paris.  Twelve of the photographs were featured in a 1936 issue of the journal Cahiers d’Art devoted to the “object” and four were exhibited in MoMA’s exhibition the same year, Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism.  The models were drawn to his attention by Max Ernst, who had discovered them and thought them exceptionally provocative, surreal shapes.  The models were used to render complex mathematical formulae into three-dimensional form, but it was not their origin in mathematics that attracted the interests of Man Ray.  “The formulas accompanying them meant nothing to me,” he later explained, “the forms themselves were as varied and authentic as any in nature” (Self-Portrait, 1963, p. 368).  While living in Hollywood, California, in the 1940s, Man Ray used the photographs he had taken in the Institut Poincaré as the basis of a series of pictures that he grouped under the title “The Shakespearean Equations,” which, in true Dada and Surrealist fashion, had as little to do with Shakespeare as they did with equations.  Man Ray retrieved the photographs he had printed in the 1930s on a trip back to Paris in 1947, and this example is believed to be among them.  This particular print is often titled Antony, as we know that it was used as the basis for the figure of Anthony in his painting Antony and Cleopatra, 1948.
