Summary "Conversion to Modernism highlights Man Ray's production from 1907 to 1917. This book is the first comprehensive, fully illustrated work to examine this artist's seminal years, beginning with his high school years in Brooklyn, his studies at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design in New York, and the time he spent in life drawing classes at the more progressive Ferrer Center."--BOOK JACKET
