Marcel Duchamp Paintings

Marcel Duchamp (1887 – 1968) was a French artist whose work is strongly associated with the Cubist and Dadaist movements. Some regard Duchamp as the one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. His “Ready-made” art pieces, such as the Fountain, challenged the traditional definition of what art could be and opened the door for more experimentation by the artists who followed him. He had a profound influence on the development of Western art post Work War I. One of his most iconic paintings is Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 (1912); it combines qualities from both the Cubist and Futurist movements. Duchamp was no doubt a very experimental, avant-garde artist who constantly challenged the status quo of the art world. He later abandoned art altogether and focused the rest of his life on chess.
