THE STORY OF AN OBSESSION: MARCEL DUCHAMP, THE PESKY BODY THING AND ETANT DONNÉS -- Barbara Probst Solomon
"Larry River's painting Seventy Five Years Later, where the figure of a naked young woman is ambling down the abstract staircase of Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase is prescient. The question Rivers seems to be asking himself -- how far can you go with abstraction? With modernism? -- must have been troubling Duchamp. For the last twenty years of his life Duchamp worked in secret on his Etant Donnés...The installation contains a stuffed leather form of a naked woman lying on the grass...which can be seen through two peep holes in a wooden door."
