    It seems high time that someone started a thread about Marcel Duchamp. Now, where's my needle.

    I surprised that there wasn't a Duchamp thread either, now that you bring it up.

    i love how he treated art and made it somethng so different. most people dont agree with what he did, kind of the way people think about pollocks work but i love his art. i wouldnt pay that much for a piece of him, well mayeb not in a near future but i do appreaciate the symbolism and the meaning behind it. this is one of my favourites from him and the one hes most commonly known for.

    I think most people don't understand what he did. :lol:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dadaism


    I think his art could be called "Flip Art", in the sense that he flipped the usual meaning and way of seeing things to something entirely different, and The Fountain, of course, is a great example of that. Personally I think it suggests a very healthy approach to reality, and especially to art. The world we live in is rapidly changing, and Duchamp was profoundly aware of that. Art is a way of making sure we don't get too settled in our ways of thinking about anything. Basically, we constantly have to keep our eyes on the ball or we are sure to miss something. And that can be dangerous. Life is a chess game, and Duchamp wants us to win. B)

    I have this theory regarding duchamp and that he was highly envious of the likes of DaVinci, and therefore because he could not match their talents, he ridiculed them and the whole art establishment.

    There is only one Da Vinci, and there is only one Duchamp. I am a fan of both. Da Vinci was probably the greatest pure artist, and Duchamp was probably the greatest in saying not to take anything too seriously, including art.

    Personally, I think Leonardo would be an enormous fan of Duchamp. B)

    Possibly one of my favourite artworks ever..
    'Bride stripped bare by her bachelors, even' 1915-23

    The cracks were caused by someone who dropped it in transit but Duchamp decided
    the artwork looked more 'complete' so he allowed it to be kept this way..

    i think he was great. there are oh so many types of art. if we take into consideration it is an expression of creativity and most people think that if you are no davinci then youa re no artist. i think the man, duchamp, was great, what he did was so cool, many more things need that kind of humor and nonchalant-ness if thats even a word lol

    Duchamp is pretty interesting, especially his ideas about identity and his clever wordplays.

    Duchamp was basically the first great surrealist comedian. Totally deadpan and off the wall, he predated Dali, Peter Sellers, the Beatles, and Andy Warhol by about fifty years. B)

    The Chess Game by Duchamp. The second one is a cover by André Breton, obviously not Duchamp, but a good example of the "Dada" approach to the covers and journals that they put out.artstor
