  • Marcel Duchamp: tant Donns

  • Aug 14, 2009 to Nov 29, 2009
  • Location: Philadelphia, USA Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • Description: tant Donns, Duchamps last major work, has been described by Jasper Johns as é’“the strangest work of art in any museum. What at first looks like an boarded-up wooden door is actually a tableau visible only through two peep holes, which reveal a half-hidden naked woman in a landscape. Duchamp worked on the piece in secret for 20 years, while even his friends thought he had given up his art, and it was only revealed to the public when it was posthumously installed in the museum. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its first display, and in memory of the late director Anne dHarnoncourt, who oversaw the original installation as a 25-year-old assistant, the museum has organised this show of 80 studies, photographs, erotic objects and other documents.
