WOODEN CHESSBOARD BOX with multiples. Deluxe edition of the Catalogue for the Marcel Duchamp exhibition at Ronny Van de Velde, Antwerpen, September 15 - December 15, 1991.

Antwerp: Ronny van de Veld, 1991.

Ronny van de Veld Very Good. Item #12422

15" x 15". Limited to 850 copies. The top and bottom of the wooden box are reproductions of Duchamp's 'mental' Chess Board. The box contains the following items: a list of the exhibits; a portfolio with faithful reproductions of works by Duchamp, also including a copy of H. Vuibert, Les anaglyphes géométriques, Paris, Librairie Vuibert, 1912 (with 3D-glasses) and a reproduction of a page from The Blind Man No. 2 (P.B.T.); a book with articles on Duchamp by André Breton and Arturo Schwarz (inserted, on a seperate sheet, a reproduction of Le Grand Verre); a single photograph of "Marcel Duchamp at the age Eighty-Five" an audiocassette of Duchamp speaking; with reproduction of "The Breast." Unfortunately an excessive amount of glue was used to glue the breast onto the cassette, which has dripped around and caused the exhibition list to be glued to the wax paper protecting the breast. I think all can be separated with a minimal amount of damage; at this point I've left well enough alone.

Price: $950.00
