Sur Marcel Duchamp
par Robert Lebel

Robert Lebel (1901-1986) was a poet, novelist, essayist, art historian, and painting expert. He took part in the Surrealists’ activities and wrote Marcel Duchamp’s first monograph in 1959. This book is a facsimile of the original edition in French of Sur Marcel Duchamp Robert Lebel published in 1959 in Paris by Trianon Press. This historical book by Robert Lebel – the first to be published on Marcel Duchamp – is an introduction to the work and personality of a single artist but also a reconsideration of the situation of the painter in contemporary society and a thorough analysis of mobile creative activity. It is supplemented by texts by Marcel Duchamp, André Breton and HP Roché, a bibliography and a catalog raisonné of all the works of Duchamp and is profusely illustrated throughout with images in black and white and inserted, die-cut colour plates. The layout of this book was itself even created and designed by Marcel Duchamp himself and is beautifully reproduced and printed here on paper stocks and using production methods that reflect the qualities of the original book.
