Description

By Francis M. Naumann

Francis M. Naumann has been writing about the art and ideas of Marcel  Duchamp for nearly forty years.  The present compilation consists of articles he has published in various scholarly catalogues and journals,  although they have been extensively revised and expanded for inclusion  in this publication.  A number of new essays were written specially for  this volume (several of which are based on lectures that he has  delivered on the artist over the years).  The book is designed to  address not only the major works produced by Marcel Duchamp—from the Nude Descending a Staircase (1912) and Large Glass (1915-23), to the Etant donnés  (1946-66)—but to engage readers with the major themes that occur with  some consistency in a lifetime of work: chess, optics, humor, eroticism,  anarchy, replication, money and art.
