Calder created a tribute to photographer Man Ray for a suite of prints, Hommage à Man Ray, initiated by the artist's last assistant. Calder's Hommage was one of only three submitted, and the edition was never published. With its odd assortment of images, this tribute to the eighty-four-year-old Man Ray reads like a private joke between two friends. Calder fondly recalled his early days in Paris when he hung out with "quite a gang," which included Man Ray and Kiki, the "Queen of Montparnasse." The two had many other mutual friends, including Marcel Duchamp and Mary Reynolds.
