The Essential Duchamp
This exhibition catalogue accompanying a show at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul offers an engaging and accessible introduction to one of the 20th century's greatest and most enigmatic artists.
This richly illustrated publication explores the full career of the hugely influential and endlessly fascinating French-American artist Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968). A pioneer whose creative output was predicated on a fundamental questioning of what art is, Duchamp is well known despite remaining mysterious as an artist, owing to his elusive persona and the unconventional nature of his work. Focusing on the world-renowned Duchamp collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Essential Duchamp tells the artist's story through four key periods.
