by Anne on July 28, 2011

Marcel Duchamp, artist

July 28, 1887-October 2, 1968

Lives of the Artists: Masterpieces, Messes (and What the Neighbors Thought) by Kathleen Krull, illustrated by Kathryn Hewitt (Harcourt, 1995)

A French-American modern artist, Duchamp had dust two inches thick in his NY apt—on purpose.

Visit MoMA.org (The Museum of Modern Art) and peruse images of Duchamp’s work from their collection.
