Marcel Duchamp in Perspective by Joseph Masheck

Book Description

Best known for cheeky conceptual works--like his signed urinals ("R. Mutt") and his graffitioed Mona Lisa--Marcel Duchamp (1887--1968) was also an extraordinary painter and sculptor (Nude Descending a Staircase) who changed the language of twentieth-century art and reigns with Picasso and Matisse as one of its greatest influences. Joseph Masheck has compiled a sampler of the best writing on Duchamp, with pieces that include Duchamp's obituary from Artforum, written by Jasper Johns; Octavio Paz on the ready-mades; a Duchamp post-mortem by Hans Richter; Donald Judd's investigation of Rrose Selavy; a "Counter-Avant-Garde" by Clement Greenberg; a consideration by Guillaume Apollinaire; and John Cage's "26 Statements on Marcel Duchamp." Illustrated with photographs of Duchamp's seminal pieces, and updated with a substantial preface that offers new scholarship as well as a fascinating consideration of why Duchamp's popularity has exponentially increased since this book first appeared, this is an essential volume for the Duchamp devotee.

Books By Author Joseph Masheck

Mostly Modern by Joseph Masheck Mostly Modern, Hardback (May 2015)

A selection of critical essays from the symposium organised in honour of Joseph Mascheck's 70th birthday.

Adolf Loos by Joseph Masheck Adolf Loos, Paperback (March 2013)

Widely regarded as one of the significant prophets of modern architecture, Adolf Loos was a celebrity in his own day. This book argues that Loos' masterful "astylistic architecture" was an appreciation of tradition and utility and not, as most architectural historians have argued, a mere repudiation of the florid style of the Vienna Secession.

Building-Art by Joseph Masheck Building-Art, Paperback (May 1993)

Demonstrating a concern with on-going modernism, Masheck's essays guide the reader through the anti-modernist polemics of the 1970s and 1980s.
