What is Cadeau by Man Ray?

It is the most famous icons of the surrealist movement. It is a readymade sculpture.

Cadeau (Gift) 

The most famous of these works is certainly Cadeau; a flat iron made of cast iron on which he glued 14 nails in a row on the bottom, the flat part of the iron, making it unusable.

First made in 1921, and stolen at his first exhibition in Paris.

Man Ray replicated others in 1963, 1970 (cm.15.4 ×8.7×12.2), and 1972; and then made a series of multiples of 5,000 pieces in 1974, with the following dimensions cm. 17x10x10,5; this series is now highly sought after by art collectors.

Man Ray‘s works can be seen in the collections of the leading museums in the world.
