ECOARTPEDIA

The design of the front cover of the book "The Recurrent, Haunting Ghost: Essays on the Art, Life and Legacy of Marcel Duchamp" includes Man Ray's print Marcel Duchamp with Rotary Glass Plates in Motion, 1920 and Marcel Duchamp's Handprints.


Excerpt from the jacket concept: Marcel Duchamp...in 1961 Duchamp's stepdaughter, Jacqueline Matisse Monnier, who was helping with the construction of his "Boites-en-valise", noted that the cover was being soiled with fingerprints, so she suggested they design a cardboard container to protect the work. Duchamp proposed, instead, that they "make upon it the marks (dark grey) of 2 dirty hands which hold it before opening".

Book and Jacket designed by Dana Martin-Strebel

Marcel Duchamp's Handprints, reproduced in Docteur Charlotte Lotte Wolff, "Les Revelations psychiques de la main," Minnotaure 6 (Winter 1935), p.44.

Francis M. Naumann has been writing about the art and ideas of Marcel Duchamp for nearly 40 years. The present compilation of thirty-three essays consists of articles he has published in various scholarly catalogues and journals.

A number of new essays were written specially for this volume (several of which were based on lectures that he has delivered on the artist over the years).
  • The BOOK "The Recurrent, Haunting Ghost: MARCEL DUCHAMP is designed to address not only the major works produced by Marcel Duchamp-from the "Nude Descending a Staircase"(1912) and "Large Glass" (1915-23), to the "Etant donnes" (1946-66) but to engage readers with the major themes that occur with some consistency in a lifetime of work: chess, optics, humor, eroticism, anarchy, replication, money and art, etc.

    Francis Naumann, the author, is the owner of Francis M. Naumann Fine Art, and the exhibition "Duchamp Brothers & Sister" (at his gallery during November 2012) coincided with the release of the self-published book about Marcel Duchamp "The Recurrent, Haunting Ghost: Essays on the Art, Life and Legacy of Marcel Duchamp" reviewed by Holland Cotter of the New York Times/November 9, 2012...
