Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968)

Marcel Duchamp was born in Blainville-Crevon as younger brother of the painter Jacques Villon and the sculptor Raymond Duchamp-Villon. He began to study in Paris at the Académie Julian and, after impressionist and Cézanne influenced beginning turned to cubism. The rejection of his painting "Nude Descending a Staircase" in 1912 because it was too ‘futuristic’ for the Salon des Independants as well as the technological developments of the time and the work of the writer Raymond Roussel strongly influenced him. He turned away from painting and focused on the question whether it was possible to create works that are not ‘art’, which act indifferent towards aesthetic categories. Thus he created until his death in 1968 an oeuvre that is highly intellectual, but always purely artistic, and influenced the art of the 20th century like hardly another other artist. (fea)
