Huxley had already achieved popular success with a number of novels - Crome Yellow (1921), Point Counter Point (1928) and Brave New World (1932) by the time he, along with a number of other writers, was photographed by Man Ray in Paris. His chronically poor eyesight (near blindness) is indicated by the magnification of his eyes through the spectacle lenses. Purchased, 1988.
