    schema:reviewBody ""Marcel Duchamp's stature in the history of art has grown steadily since the 1950s, largely because several artistic movements have embraced him as their founding father. But although his influence is comparable only to that of Picasso, Duchamp continues to be relatively unknown outside his narrow circle of followers." "In Duchamp: Love and Death, even, Juan Antonio Ramirez addresses a number of intriguing questions, such as the meaning of the artist's ground-breaking ready-mades and his famous installation Etant donnes. Ramirez undertakes a step-by-step interpretation of Duchamp's Large Glass, examining the evolution of each and every element from initial concept through to its final inclusion - or disappearance. Of great interest is the author's discovery of an array of hitherto unpublished iconographic sources, including medical and industrial catalogues, school manuals, advertisements and physics and mathematics textbooks. Duchamp: Love and Death, even is a seminal monograph for understanding this crucial figure of modern art."--Jacket." ;
