Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), revolutionary aritst, inventor of readymades, obsessive chess player, and master of the silent statement, succeeded at the beginning of the 20th century to query art in its traditional form. His creations, not least his readymades such as the famous 'Fountain' (a 'reclaimed' urinal) or the 'Bottle Rack', are subversive and radical upshots of the critical confrontation with the production and marketing of art in the industrial age. While the young Duchamp still admired Monet, Fauvism, and Cubism, and for a while was quite closely aligned with the Dadaists and Surrealists, before long his work broke new ground and helped redefine art as we know it today.
