Portrait of Marcel Duchamp
Portrait of Marcel Duchamp is a circa 1920–1922 work of art by Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. It is an example of found object art, in reference to Marcel Duchamp who created various ready-made pieces beginning in 1913.
Portrait of Marcel Duchamp is an amalgamation of broken wine glasses, assorted feathers, tree twigs, and other unidentifiable objects. The portrait in form resembles that of a bird with a long, curious neck. Commanding attention, it casts an equally stimulating shadow.
