About the work
SMS # 3: Man Ray, The Father of Mona Lisa Print, 1967 by Man Ray. Ink on paper. 2000-piece edition. Clever ready-made portrait of Leonardo. The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley & Dmitri Petrov which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press, working with some of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The aim was to produce a new form of art journal that would bypass traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience instead.
