The Duchamp Book
Marcel Duchamp (1887 - 1968) was, without doubt, one of the most
controversial artists of the twentieth century. Associated with cubism,
Dada, and Surrealism, his invention of the “readymade” led him to
produce some of the most iconic works of his era. While he is often
cited as the most influential artist of his generation and is seen by
many to be the progenitor of much of the conceptual and postmodern art
of today, the writing published to date on Duchamp is often obscure and
mired in theory.
Extensively illustrated and featuring Duchamp’s own writings, The Duchamp Book provides a much needed, accessible introduction to the artist.
