i suppose it would be completely reactionary of me
to point out none of these folks can draw or paint.

after all,beauty is just prostituion,non??

Duchamp at least had the good taste
to quit and play chess.

maybe he was wise enough to realize his juvenile humor
had a sell-by date.

And you don't have to worry about getting beauty on your shoes.

Dan Collins

I seem to recall he painted Nude Descending a Staircase. I'd say that's pretty good. And remember--he was critiquing the pretensions of the gallery more than anything else.



both Duchamp and Picasso had serious
drawing and painting skills before Dada set in...the
original grand-pappy of *all* the western art to follow
...even the art-must-be-political-to-be-art BS.
