He photographed many key artists of the day, although his own salon images were often surrealistic and experimental, many made during his summers spent in Provincetown, MA.
THIS PRINT WAS EXHIBITED IN THE JOSE ALEMANY RETROSPECTIVE AT THE FUNDACION 'LA CAIXA', MADRID, 2004. THE IMAGE APPEARS IN THE EXHBITION CATALOGUE AND IS ACCOMPANIED BY THE MUSEUM'S EXHIBITION LABEL.
