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

Near fine set – slipcase and back cover has some staining
