Observatory Time - The Lovers (The Lips)

1932-1934 
Colour painting lips flying in sky over a forest (Original french title: A l'heure de l'observatoire, les Amoureux) oil on canvas 100 x 250,4 cm




The above painting is one of Man Ray's most recognized and remembered works. His lover Lee Miller's lips are pictured in the sky hovering over landscape. Miller is said to have heavily influenced Man Ray's work greatly and her presence can be traced throughout much of his art.
