As he appears in the text:

“Man Ray introduced Paul to the future Nusch Éluard, an actress and model recently arrived from Zurich. She made surrealist collages and was fond of wandering the streets of Paris alone, wearing a mask, and she inspired much of Paul’s poetry. In a deck of surrealist-photo playing cards, Man Ray made Nusch the Queen of Clubs.”
