Marcel Duchamp: Etant donnes

Marcel Duchamp: Etant donnes (Philadelphia Museum of Art) Marcel Duchamp: Etant donnes by Michael R. Taylor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Incredible images and documentation on Marcel Duchamp's great and his last piece of work "Etant donnes. When everyone thought he was playing chess, Duchamp has been working secretly on his late masterpiece. A work that is still disturbing and frankly shocking.

Violence, eros, and mystery all wrapped in one art work. Yale University did a fantastic job in putting this volume together. There are tons of Duchamp books out there, but this is truly an essential volume. The more one writes about this work, the more mysterious it becomes. Truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
