"Nude Descending a Staircase No.2" by Marcel Duchamp

This piece is called "Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2" by Marcel Duchamp. Duchamp was a French surrealist and dadaist artist. I like the color scheme of this piece. I really like the raw quality of this painting as well. I like the harsh lines and contrast of it.

  1. Enjoying your site, particularly this post. I also like Duchamp. There's a pretty funny Calvin and Hobbes comic with a play on this painting. I'll put it up on my blog. Have a look if you want.
