The celebrated, full-scale life of the century's most influential artist
One of the giants of the twentieth century, Marcel Duchamp changed the course of modern art. Visual arts, music, dance, performance-nothing was ever the same again because he had shifted art's focus from the retinal to the mental. Duchamp sidestepped the banal and sentimental to find the relationship between symbol and object and to unearth the concepts underlying art itself.
"A combination of winning biography and interpretive appraisal that leaves the reader...charmed by Tomkins's subject". -- Carlin Romano, Chicago Tribune
