Study for The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even
draftsman: Marcel Duchamp (French, 1887-1968)
Première recherche pour "La mariée mise à nu par les célibataires"
The Bride Stripped Bare by the Bachelors (July–Aug 1912; Paris, Pompidou), a drawing that consists of a mechanomorphic depiction of a bride who appears to be spun around and stripped of her clothing by two men by her side. This drawing, one of a group produced during the course of an intensely productive two-month sojourn in Munich in summer 1912, was the first work by Duchamp that explicitly identified a thematic preoccupation to which he returned repeatedly over the next ten years. from PMA website accessed 7/8/2004 http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/modern_contemporary/1952-98-1.shtmlfull view
