An iconic piece of modern art, Man Ray’s Le Cadeau (“The Gift”), is an early readymade created by Man Ray during his Dada period in 1921. Typical of the perverse, subversive inclinations of the Dada movement, the piece was so popular – such a brilliant example of the surreal, useless object – that Man Ray kept remaking it throughout his career, until finally he decided to create it as an edition in 1974, shortly before his death. Created of cast iron, the sculpture is stamped with the artist’s signature and the edition number on its handle, measures 6 ½ x 4 x 3 ½ in (16.5 x10.2 x 8.9 cm) and is from the edition of 5000.
