One of the most important artists of the 20th century, Duchamp is seen studying a chess board. In recordings taken in 1968 in Cadaques, Spain shortly before his death, Duchamp (1887-1968) reminisces: “I discarded brushed and explored the mind more than the hand.” This informative and charming film is divided into segments: The Art, which explores his early drawing, painting, and Cubist period and “The Object and the Gesture, concerned with his “ready made” objects and Dada period. The final segment chronicles the last major work: Given:1 The Waterfall 2. Illuminating Gas, a mixed media assemblage of materials, techniques, and forms erected at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1969.
