Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Biography. Picture-book. A perfect gift book, this illustrated small volume follows the life of Marcel Duchamp from freckled youth through his final masterpiece, Given: 1. The Waterfall, and 2. The Illuminating Gas. his shocking posthumous coup, unveiled in 1968. The clear, documentary tone of the text matches the colorful, primitive portraiture of the illustrations; the resulting book is a charming miniature biography, the very credulousness of which will tickle any Duchamp fan with its counter-avant garde cheek. Full-color illustrations by Andr' Raffray.

Synopsis:

Marcel Duchamp A Life in Pictures Jennifer Gough-Cooper and Jacques Caumont This little introduction to the life and works of Marcel Duchamp is modelled on a children's book, with 12 delicious dead-pan full-page color illustrations of events in Duchamp's life, and an equally tongue-in-cheek, and entirely accurate, biography. This is its first appearance in English. A must for Duchamp devotees!

Synopsis:

An absolute must for Duchamp devotees everywhere.
