This is my social self:
  1. Marcel Duchamp, Étant donnés: 1. La chute d’eau, 2. Le gaz d’éclairage1946 -1966

    It is an installation, visible only through a pair of peep holes (one for each eye) in a wooden door, of a nude woman lying on her back with her face hidden and legs spread holding a gas lamp in the air in one hand against a landscape backdrop.

    Duchamp worked secretly on the piece from 1946 to 1966 and his last major art work which surprised most of the art world who believed he’d given up art for chess almost 25 years earlier. 

    On view at: Philadelphia Museum of Art - Permanent Installation
