The First Time I Saw Nude Descending a Staircase (No.2)

December 10, 2005 Comments Off on The First Time I Saw Nude Descending a Staircase (No.2)

I saw Marcel Duchamp’s *Nude Descending a Staircase (No. 2)* in my news feeds the other day and remembered the first time I’d seen this piece in a book as a child. Instantly it had struck me that a painting could be more than just a “picture of something.” I looked at that painting often, sometimes tracing or sketching it, trying to figure out how it worked. How it looked like a woman going down the stairs and yet didn’t. It had a profound impact on me and ignited my passion for visual communication.
