9780500239179: The Duchamp Dictionary

“Girst elegantly unravels the skeins of Duchamp’s thinking. . . . An essential compendium for puzzling out an essential artist.” ―Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation

Among the most influential artists of the last hundred years, Marcel Duchamp holds great allure for many contemporary artists worldwide and is largely considered to be one of the founding fathers of modern art. Despite this popularity, books on Duchamp are often hyper-theoretical, rarely presenting the artist in an accessible way. This new book explores the artist’s life and work through short, alphabetical dictionary entries that introduce his legacy in a clear and engaging way.

From alchemy and anatomy to Warhol and windows, The Duchamp Dictionary offers a pithy and readable text that draws on in-depth scholarship and the very latest research. Thomas Girst includes close to 200 entries on the most interesting and important artworks, relationships, people, and ideas in Duchamp’s life―from The Bicycle Wheel and Fountain to Walter and Louise Arensberg, Peggy Guggenheim, Katherine Dreier, and Arturo Schwarz. Delightful, newly commissioned illustrations introduce each letter of the alphabet and accompany select entries, capturing the irreverent spirit of the artist himself. 59 color illustrations

Review :

“One century ago Duchamp helped change the way the world considers and looks at art. . . Thomas Girst set out to illuminate the works, influence and life of Marcel Duchamp in a much less academic fashion than previous writing about the artist.”
- ARTINFO

“A delightful, whimsical read for the Duchamp novice and expert alike. It’s likely that one would learn more from this seemingly segmented book than they would from a formal Duchamp biography. . . . accessible and visual, yet still remarkably complex.”
- Complex

“Not only insightful, but also full of humor.”
- BOA (Books on Art)

“A fittingly Duchampian book that challenges one’s thinking about the artist and the book. This is a reference volume that begs to be read as a novel; it is a book for specialists of modern art that will also be enjoyable to the uninitiated. Libraries should purchase two copies of this book: one to be consulted in the reference section, another to circulate so that new generations of artists and scholars will discover Duchamp through this engaging book. Highly recommended.”

Description du livre Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. État : New. Luke Frost, Therese Vandling (illustrateur). Language: English . Brand New Book. Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) has entered mainstream culture as one of the founding fathers of modern art. Despite his popularity, books on Duchamp often shroud his work in theoretical and critical writing. Here, instead, is a book exploring the artist s life and work in a thoroughly new and engaging manner, with short, alphabetical dictionary entries written in lively, jargon- free prose that at last allow Duchamp s work and influence to be accessible and enjoyable for a wide audience. The book features more than 200 entries on the most interesting and important artworks, relationships, people and ideas in Duchamp s life, from chess, puns, the fourth dimension, love and genius, to the Bicycle Wheel and Fountain, Walter and Louise Arensberg, Peggy Guggenheim, Katherine S. Dreier and Arturo Schwarz. A contextual introduction shows how the dictionary form has been an inspiration to artists and writers from Flaubert to the Surrealists. Underpinned by the latest scholarship and research, Thomas Girst s texts show how, in the words of contemporary artist Thomas Hirschhorn, Duchamp was the most intelligent mind of his time .
