Adam and Eve (1924) Marcel Duchamp and Bronja Perlmutter

Three years later, immediately after the self-portrait in the Monte Carlo Bond –in Cinésketch, a theatrical diversion of Picabia and René Clair- Duchamp reappears as Adam in a tableau vivant based on a sixteenth-century painting by Cranach, displaying an evidently artificial beard (a significant counterpart to the ambiguous beard of foam), a watch, and a shaved pubis. Certainly not the last 'shaving' in his work. --http://www.toutfait.com/issues/volume2/issue_5/articles/mauricio/mauricio1.html [Oct 2004]
