Marcel Duchamp

I frequently read up about fine art to help recharge my creative batteries.  One particular fine artist I want to talk about today is Marcel Duchamp.

 

Thanks to Arwen987 of YouTube for putting together this video!

Marcel Duchamp (28 July 1887 – 2 October 1968) was a French artist (who later became a US citizen) who is considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.  His works as well as his attitudes towards art and its creation would shape 20th century art greatly.

His better known works are his scandalous Cubist/Futurist painting, Nude Descending a Staircase, and his various sculptures involving “readymades” like  Fountain.
