Paul Behnke posts a surprising selection of paintings by Man Ray. The works demonstrates Man Ray's wide range of approaches and and subjects including moody, modernist landscapes that recall Marsden Hartley's early work, abstractions that call to mind Stuart Davis, and surrealist imagery. 

Behnke also posts several quotes from Man Ray about his work including: "I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive."
