July 5 2007 Art Appreciation Newsletter


Marcel Duchamp's painting "Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2" (1912) was first shown at the 1913 Armory Show in New York. Also known as the first International Exhibition of Modern Art in America, it was held at the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets.

It is considered to this day to be one of the most influencial events in the history of American art, with over 300 European and American artists exhibiting over 1,000 paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts.

Duchamp's work was the most talked about painting in the show. No doubt alot of the controversy was in trying to locate the nude. Regrettably, there was no nude to be found. This was Cubism at its finest. This study of motion was also reflected in a sculpture by Italian futurist Umberto Boccioni with "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space" (1913).

"Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2" was first purchased from the Armory Show by Frederic C. Torrey of San Francisco. It now hangs in the Philadelphia Museum of Art where Boccioni's amazing sculpture can also be seen.
