    • Gervais, André (translated by Kilborne, Sarah Skinner)    12/01/00

    By no means complete and, on more than one occasion, eminently perfectible, this bibliography aspires nevertheless to offer the first gathering of the names of writers and the titles of literary works that are related, either directly or indirectly, to Marcel Duchamp or to the work of Marcel Duchamp. For matters of clarification, entries have be

    These six paintings linking Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray are part of a long-term project on art, artists and art movements. The Duchamp/Man Ray paintings are pairs or companion pieces.

    Nullement complète et, sur plus d'un plan, éminemment perfectible, cette bibliographie vise néanmoins à offrir un premier rassemblement de noms d'écrivains et de titres d'oeuvres littéraires qui sont en rapport direct ou indirect, les uns et les autres, avec l'oeuvre ou la personne de Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968).
