- About the work

A mechanical bride, nine bachelors and a chocolate grinder are a few of the components in Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass. In his rejection of art as merely eye candy, Duchamp gave up painting and began creating art that engaged the viewer’s mind in different ways. In The Large Glass, Duchamp combined an array of earlier pictures and ideas into a new totality. Although he worked on it from 1915 to 1923, it was never finished because he got bored with the laborious manual task. He preferred employing his brain rather than his hands. The Large Glass is accompanied by a Green Box containing notes in facsimile that give some clues to the puzzling piece. So, what is this work about? Duchamp leaves that for you to decide.
