Boots n Burbs: ART HISTORY: Armory Show Marcel Duchamp, Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2, 1912, Philadelphia Museum of Art
Marcel Duchamp's Cubist-inspired Nude Descending a Staircase was famously described by one critic as "an explosion in a shingle factory."
Marcel Duchamp Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2) 1912 Oil on canvas Philadelphia Museum of Art
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

New Canaan, CT - The Glass House. The famous Glass House, created by American architect Philip Johnson, is one of the most significant structures of the 20th century. An object of fascination for decades, the rectangular house was built in 1949 out of quarter- inch-thick glass and without interior walls. Absent of curtains or blinds, the property’s 47 acres of trees and landscaping are the house’s only source of privacy.
