Carl Van Vechten, (June 17, 1880 – December 21, 1964) original, vintage print/'real photo post card' of acclaimed artists Salvador Dali and Man Ray.

Van Vechten, the celebrated American writer and photographer, was the literary executor of Gertrude Stein and a key figure of the Harlem Renaissance movement. He captured iconic images of all the key members in the worlds of Art, Theater, Music, and Literature. Van Vechten viewed his photography as a hobby; he never took commissions, he never sold photographs. He would grant permission to publish them, but had strict requirements to do so. He was a prominent fixture in 20th century photography collections with his work being included in such institutions as The Library of Congress, The Museum of The City of New York and The Smithsonian Institution.

Salvador Dali (May 11, 1904 - January 23, 1989), prominent Spanish surrealist painter from the Catalonia region of Spain. Dali was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist works.  Perhaps his best known work was his 1931 "The Persistence of Memory".

Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky, August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976), American modernist artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. He was a significant contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. He produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. He was best known in the art world for his avant-garde photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer.

This unsigned, vintage Van Vechten image, features the photographer's original credit stamp and printed post card graphics on its verso along with the title "Man Ray & Salvador Dali - Paris" unique roman numeral archive number "XXXV f"  and printing date "June 16 1934" all in the artist's hand.  Embossed on its front side, bottom right corner is a "Photograph by Carl Van Vechten" original 'blind' stamp. The photograph measuring approximately 3.5 x 5.5 inches, printed on a thick weight matte stock, is in fine condition aside from some minor age wear.
