Observatory Time-The Lovers

This painting was made by Man Ray in 1936. It is a very famous surrealist image. I think this painting is very interesting and different especially for 1936. The woman is dressed as though she is from this time period but the whole image doesn't seem to go together. The lips on the top of the painting were another one of Man Ray's paintings that he put together with the model reaching towards them. This is not one of my favorite paintings but I do think it is interesting.
