Marcel Duchamp ETANT DONNES Phila Museum 1967 Monograph

The Philadelphia Art Museum acquired a large, previously unknown work of art by Marcel Duchamp, the last major work which had absorbed him intermittantly from 1946 through 1966. It was entitled ETANT DONNES: 1 la chute d'eau, 2 le gaz d'eclairage. It was acquired by the Museum in 1967 and quietly installed near his other works according to his wishes. This monograph, a Philadelphia Art Museum Bulletin, is devoted completely to Duchamp and this new work. Title: ETANT DONNES: 1 la chute d'eau, 2 le gaz d'eclairage Reflections on a New Work by Marcel Duchamp. Written by Anne D'Harnoncourt and Walter Hopps. Published in 1969, the year following his death in Oct of 1968. Soft cover. Stapled spine. 60 pages (including covers). 38 black & white photographs. 9.25" x 7.25". Slight wear cover edges/corners. A sprinkling of arrows and underlines in ink by the original owner in a few spots but they are fairly neat and don't interfere with any of the information. Folded bottom corner of pages 45 and 47. Slight yellowing to back cover. Very good condition otherwise.

Etant Donnes was considered shocking at the time of its installation. "The viewer, or voyeur, standing within the Museum Gallery... looks through... a pair of small holes in Duchamp's weathered, wooden Spanish door, into a brilliantly illuminated landscape in which a nude figure of a woman lies supine, raising in her left hand a little, glowing gas lamp, while a waterfall sparkles in the distance."
