    Marcel Duchamp Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2) 1912 Oil on canvas Philadelphia Museum of Art

  • John-David Keating

    Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 is a 1912 painting by Marcel Duchamp. The work is widely regarded as a Modernist classic and has become one of the most famous of its time. In its first presentation at the Parisian Salon des Indépendants, it was rejected by the Cubists and caused a huge stir during its exhibition at the 1913 Armory Show. The work is now found in permanent exhibition at the Louis and Walter Arensberg Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Philadelphia.

    Throwback Thursday: “That’s not art,” declared former President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1913, “The International Exhibition of Modern Art” opened at New York City’s 69th Regiment Armory. Including over 1,300 works of art by over 300 international artists, the exhibition was the first introduction to avant-garde art for many Americans. The show was met with accusations of insanity. ”Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2),” 1912, Marcel Duchamp
