Duchamp, Marcel

Signed limited edition prints, artists proofs and rare prints by Marcel Duchamp including DADA, Étant donnés, and The Large Glass. 

Marcel Duchamp, (1887 – 1968) endures as one of the leading artists of recent history. As well as producing an influential body of artwork, Duchamp advised several high-profile collectors, thereby shaping the tastes in Western Art during his lifetime.

An early proponent of Dadaism, Duchamp’s most famous piece Fountain (1917, the urinal installation) remains an iconic symbol of the 20th century. In 1920, along with Katherine Dreier and Man Ray, Duchamp founded the Société Anonyme, a group which collected modern art works, and arranged modern art exhibitions and lectures throughout the 1930s.

Despite achieving considerable fame among his peers, he maintained an aloof persona, even to the extent of pretending to abandon art for chess. Duchamp continued however to make artwork until his death in 1968.
