Talent, intelligence, humor … and erotic atmosphere. By visiting this exhibition we understand a little extraordinary aura Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) is surrounded largely by modern artists, and this world. This is in no doubt one of the most iconic figures of twentieth century art.
The Centre Pompidou, cultivating against floor, realizes for the first time the exhibition of a hundred tables, and around, Marcel Duchamp, who himself was very playful, or at least mischievous. This approach, monographic, contextual and deliberately paradoxical, invites visitors to reflections imposed by this series of drawings and paintings from that which would, had been told over and over again, finally killed the paint.

He says: “ The successful painter must occur: then it is repeated, ad infinitum, and he painted apples, apples and more apples still. This is supremely annoying . “
These creations would not lead to not Marcel Duchamp, almost conscientiously to carry out his great work, The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even , started in 1910, said unfinished by the artist in 1923, and commonly known as Grand Glass .
This group represents almost all his books and pictorial works, which he had carefully placed in the hands of a small circle of collectors, while replicating some miniaturized in his formidable Boîte-en-Valise (1935-1941 / 1958), for posterity and those he called the “viewers”.
Marcel Duchamp’s Boîte-en-Valise, 1935-1941 / 1958. “Instead of painting something, he had to reproduce these tables that I loved so much, in miniature and in a very small volume. I did not know how to do it. I thought of a book, but I don ‘ did not like that idea. Then came to me the idea of the box in which all my works would find collected as a museum in miniature, a portable museum, which is why I sat in a suitcase. ” Marcel Duchamp, 19 + 55.
Drawings and paintings dating usually a period of a little more than a decade of pretty early on (his artistic engagement in 1905!) at the beginning of the 1920s but also take into account his meticulous engravings Selected Details after Cranach, Rodin, Courbet and Ingres , which date 1968

With few exceptions, these paintings are still relatively unknown in Europe. Some, a contrario , were able to mark the history of art so noisy and sometimes exaggerated, but … always justified as Nude Descending a Staircase rejected at the Salon des Independants in 1911 by his brothers (Jacques Villon and Raymond Duchamp-Villon), for his cubist friends and creating controversy in 1912 at the Armory Show in New York, or LHOOQ (1919), whose title is still the delight of the student world and great mathematicians.
Most of the works on display have been loaned to the Centre Pompidou (who in 1977 organized the first retrospective Marcel Duchamp) by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They are often enriched and enhanced bookish sources, pictorial, scientific and technical information Duchamp drank during these fruitful years.
So the exhibition does offer some key new reading better approach a work of researcher, a clear and programmatic work.
cartoons to Nude Descending a Staircase (1 and 2), mathematics in very recurring theme of the bride , works on perspective to the films of Méliès or Marey, from Impressionism to Cubism (it “déthéorisa” with application intelligence and humor) or futurism, from Cranach to Vinci, Manet, Redon, through Picabia His friend Kupka, Ingres or even when it comes to design, the course, with references sometimes unexpected but carefully chosen to be essential, invites the public to track the artist on the way to developing a of the richest, hermetic and intriguing works of modern art, the Large Glass .
The exhibition reveals the pictorial research of this awesome jack-of-all-that Marcel Duchamp was his Fauve period, his Symbolist loans, his explorations (and his very personal interpretation) of Cubism. It’s fun and refreshing to see in this show how much nonsense and humor characterize his work, especially through the original autograph score of the artist, preserved at the Pompidou Centre.
