    (July 28, 1887-October 2, 1968)
    Birth name was Henri-Robert-Marcel Duchamp
    Associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements
    Works include ‘Fountain,' ‘L.H.O.O.Q.,' ‘Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2,' ‘Bicycle Wheel,' ‘In Advance of a Broken Arm,' ‘Bottle Rack,' ‘The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass),' ‘Portrait of Chess Players' and ‘To Be Looked At (From The Other Side Of The Glass) With One Eye, Close To, For Almost An Hour'
    Sometimes used the name ‘Rose Sélavy'
    He outraged critics with his gimmicky art.
    One ‘sculpture' is simply a rest room urinal that he called ‘Fountain.'
    He used a lot of juvenile puns.
    He drew a mustache on a copy of the Mona Lisa and gave it a title that translates as ‘She's Got a Hot Ass.'
    He sometimes dressed in drag and used a female pseudonym.
    He married a woman for her money, then divorced her when her allowance wasn't what he expected.
    He was an obsessive chess player.
    He eventually gave up his art career to play chess all the time.
    He had a mischievous sense of humor.
    One critic claims that he actually created most of his ‘found art' from scratch (including the urinal and the fake Mona Lisa).
    He was a very good chess player.
    His wife once glued all his chess pieces down to piss him off.
