Marcel Duchamp's intriguing work is here presented in its full meaning. Encompassing as a touching retrospective, both artistic and personal, the range of his lifework, the "box in a valise" is a miniature monograph realized by the artist himself, containing the reproductions of sixty-nine of his works. The author here analyzes the idea of the box in a valise, detailing Duchamp's working process and his way of achieving this singular monograph.

Lavishly illustrated with full-color and B&W photographs. Translated from the German by David Britt. Includes an explanatory text, biographical data, a bibliography and a list of plates.
