About

DUCHAMP, Marcel. Eau et Gaz à Tous les Étages. Accompanied by a self-portrait of Duchamp signed "Marcel Dechiravit," with a hand-coloured engraving of "Grand Verre," an original pochoir frontispiece, and a pochoir of the readymade "Eau et Gaz à Tous les Étages" signed by Duchamp. Folio, 330 x 245 mm, bound loose as issued, in the publisher's cloth bound box, in a new cloth folding box. Paris: Trianon Press, 1959. A MINT copy of the deluxe edition of the first catalogue raisonné of the work of Marcel Duchamp, containing 208 detailed entries and an extensive bibliography. It comes in a box designed by the artist with a signed readymade mounted on the front cover, reading: "Eau et Gaz à Tous les Étages." This expression was a common part of real estate signage in early twentieth-century France, and it was a continuing theme in Duchamp's manuscript notes dating back to 1911. In its day the sign indicated a building with modern conveniences, thus setting it apart from nineteenth-century structures. The catalogue raisonné itself, entitled: Sur Marcel Duchamp contains 122 plates and was compiled by Robert Lebel in co-operation with Duchamp, a collaboration which is well documented in a reprint of the catalogue made by the Centre Georges Pompidou in 1996. The red cloth covered box bears a mounted autoportrait de profil of Duchamp, signed "Marcel Dechiravit." The box has two hinged panels of an acetate reproduction and a collotype reproduction, with the former depicting a scale-version of Duchamp's famous The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even (the Large Glass), which was the inspiration for three of Duchamp's most important artist's books: The Box of 1914, The Green Box (1934), and A l'Infinitif (The White Box, 1967). Number 86 of an edition of 137 copies, with the pochoir of the readymade initialed by Duchamp, the autoportrait, which is on pinkish paper, signed by Duchamp, and with the colophon signed by both Duchamp and Lebel. Schwarz, The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp, No. 563. Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era, 1870-2000, No. 136. Duchamp. Exposicio organitzada per la Fundacio Joan Miro, No. 60.
