Summary
One of the giants of the twentieth century, Marcel Duchamp changed the course of modern art. Visual arts, music, dance, performance--nothing was ever the same again because he had shifted art's focus from the retinal to the mental. Duchamp sidestepped the banal and sentimental to find the relationship between symbol and object and to unearth the concepts underlying art itself
Summary
A portrait of one of the fathers of post-modernism reveals Marcel Duchamp's humor, originality, and charm, as well as the artist's romantic affairs and his influence on contemporary personalities
