Brancusi & Duchamp

The Art of Dialogue

Text by Paul B. Franklin.

Brancusi & Duchamp

"No matter how different the level of realization of their work—Brancusi’s so refined and elegantly crafted, Duchamp’s so aggressive and formally offhand—both men stand apart from their contemporaries in ways that are similar to one another." –Rosalind Krauss

Brancusi & Duchamp: The Art of Dialogue explores the aesthetic dialogue between Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957) and Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968), two of the most inimitable artists of the 20th century. Brancusi and Duchamp struck up a friendship in the 1910s that endured for decades. This fully illustrated catalog by Paul B. Franklin presents a selection of 80 sculptures, objects, photographs, films and drawings from an international array of public and private collections, as well as a selection of rare archival documents. Highlights include one original Brancusi sculpture and four posthumous casts in polished bronze; numerous vintage photographic prints by the sculptor of some of his most iconic creations; several of Duchamp’s readymades; and other works including his chess treatise Opposition and Sister Squares Are Reconciled (1932), the cover of which he designed in collaboration with Brancusi.


"Whatever This May Be—'It Is Not Art,'" New York American, March 13, 1927, is reproduced from 'Brancusi & Duchamp.'

A stellar feat of art book publishing in 'Brancusi & Duchamp'

Featured spreads are from Brancusi & Duchamp, an exquisite piece of art book publishing exploring the decades-long friendship and artistic dialogue between these two giants of twentieth-century art. "After cubism, two booming cannon shots were fired around 1913," French writer, art advisor, collector and The Blind Man co-founder Henri-Pierre Roché is quoted by author Paul B. Franklin: "A little smoke was seen, but the twin explosions and two bomb-blast messages—atomic bombs, I say—have yet to register… In my modern atmosphere—where I have lived very simply like a rat in a hole for nearly fifty years…, I have yet to see the long-awaited deflagration of the Brancusi–Duchamp double bomb… To my mind, they inaugurate a new era in art." continue to blog
