Descripción

John Golding. Duchamp. The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelords, Even. Penguin-Art in Context. 1973. 116 p. + 1 colour plate. 23×19 cm.

This book discusses ‘The Large Glass’ in relation to Cubism, Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, Alfred Jarry, Raymond Roussel. It analyses the work’s sexual imagery and suggests its parallels with alchemical procedure and thoughts. An exploration of the historical context (cubism, futurism, dadaism), literary antecedents (especially Jarry and Roussel), followed by an analysis of the imagery of the Glass. The author realises that no explanation or solution of the work is possible (or perhaps even needed if there is, as Duchamp himself pointed out, «no problem»), but nevertheless effectively illuminates some of its labynthine recesses.
