Marcel Duchamp changed the history of modern art. His impact on the twentieth century is rivaled only by that of Matisse and Picasso, and no other figure has so directly influenced recent art forms.
This book, besides presenting a documented photographic survey of Duchamp's works, offers ten original essays by eminent scholars and critics. The essays cover Duchamp's explorations in the areas of language, poetry, the machine, alchemy, and the epistemology of art; on a more personal level, they treat the milieux and the friendships that shaped his character, lifestyle, and the influence his example has exerted.
