Inhaltsangabe: Marcel Duchamp was a controversial and influential figure in 20th-century art. He achieved early notoriety with the painting "Nude Descending a Staircase", exhibited at the Armory Show in New York in 1913. He questioned the concept of "the work of art" and even the validity of art itself. Originally published in 1969, this book, containing four new chapters, is a revised edition of a survey of Duchamp's work, life and ideas. The text examines his artistic experimentation and his constant search for new expressive possibilities, and includes an analysis of his masterpiece "The Large Glass". Illustrated appendices provide a catalogue raisonne of all known works - including 253 that have recently been discovered - and a bibliography of his writings, lectures, translations and interviews.
Inhaltsangabe: "To be a painter for the sake of being a painter was never the ultimate aim of my life. That's why I tried to go into different forms of activity -- purely optical things and kineticism". When Gabrielle Buffet discovered Duchamp's Rotoreliefs, she emphasized this point further: "Duchamp's aim was to primarily to modify all plastic matter, to reject once and for all from his working arsenal all the traditional tools and equipment (tubes of paint, canvas, and brushes); to obtain the effect by mechanical means instead of through the expression of personal dynamism inherent in a particular individuality; to substitute technical value for expressive value".
