Marcel Duchamp
The Oculist Witnesses vintage Marcel Duchamp poster with Richard Hamilton photo

1970

$1,200

About

This poster features a photograph, taken by Richard Hamilton, of Marcel Duchamp signing “The Oculist Witnesses” 1967 glass. The poster is an offset lithograph, with a clear polyester laminate which depicts the glass, and embossed foil reproducing the silver image encased in the glass. Duchamp had made studies for most of the sections of his monumental “The Bride stripped bare by her Bachelors even: The Large Glass”1915-23 (Collection: Philadelphia Museum of Art). In collaboration with Richard Hamilton (who had made a reconstruction of “The Large Glass” for Duchamp’s Tate exhibition in 1966) Duchamp created glass multiples of two sections for which he had not made studies: “The Oculist Witnesses” and “Sieves”. Both were produced by Petersburg Press, together with this ambitious poster. A copy of this poster is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
