les mains libres, pen and ink drawing
“during the thirties, Man Ray made a large number of drawings while in Paris or traveling in the south of France. Man Ray had shown these drawings to Eluard, who asked him to leave them with him. On Man Ray’s return, he found to his delight that his friend had illustrated each drawing with a poem… resulting in the publication of Les Main Libres, a book in which more than sixty pen-and-ink drawings are reproduced.” more drawings here.
