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.
