Walk and stop at the National Portrait Gallery. It’s foggy and cold out there, so let Man Ray keep you company.
This exhibition is a great first lesson, but it’s also a treat for those advanced in the life, work and tribulations of one of the greatest artists of the last century. The fans will probably spend double the normal time in there, smiling uncontrollably with every new step taken, discovering some works never seen before in UK, some of his groundbreaking studies of Barbette, Catherine Deneuve, Ava Gardner, Lee Miller, Kiki de Montparnasse, the famous solarized portraits, personal and intimate portraits of friends and lovers.
And what absolute bliss that is.
