Marcel Duchamp - Oil On Canvas - 89 x 147 cm

famous painting Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2 of Marcel Duchamp

Marcel Duchamp made a scandalous scene when Nude Descending a Staircase was presented as a cubist painting. The image depicts an abstract dynamic motion of a figure marked by lines, cylindrical and conical shapes. The arcs of the dotted lines may suggest a thrusting pelvic motion. The dark outlines serve as motion lines, emphasizing the movement while the shattered geometric shapes in the lower corner suggest the stairs. Duchamp was interested in expanding the perception of a moving body at the time of painting this, although rooted in cubism, this piece eventually led to his break from the movement as the Cubists rejected it. It is now seen as a Cubo-futuristic painting, perhaps influenced by the invention of the camera shutter which allowed time-lapse photography. Though this painting was received with much criticism and hostility, it had challenged the American and European artists like never before. It is now displayed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art as part of the permanent collection alongside preliminary studies and a later copy by Duchamp.
