Juliet Man Ray
Juliet Man Ray (1911 – January 17, 1991) was an American dancer and model, who became the wife and muse of the artist Man Ray.
She was born Juliet Browner, the daughter of Henry Browner, who had emigrated from Romania and later graduated from the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy. She graduated from James Monroe High School and then studied dance with Martha Graham, before becoming a model.
After dinner we went to a night club where some of the best jazz of the period was being played. We danced. Juliet was like a feather in my arms.
In 1946, she married Man Ray, in a double wedding with their friends Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning. From 1951, they lived in a studio in Paris near the Luxembourg Gardens until his death in 1976 at the age of 86.
