n is for not much

The reduction of a head in movement to a bare line seemed to me defensible.

Marcel Duchamp (1887- 1968) artist

Liked the music too. Like the wall, it is simple and somewhat bare.

Looks to me like the right eye in this piece of art seems to have a tear about to fall.
The brought tears to my eyes thinking of Detroit.

Marcel Duchamp (28 July 1887 – 2 October 1968; French pronunciation: [maʁsɛl dyˈʃɑ̃]) was a French artist whose work is most often associated with the Dadaist and Surrealist movements. Considered by some to be one of the most important artists of the 20th century, Duchamp's output influenced the development of post-World War I Western art. He advised modern art collectors, such as Peggy Guggenheim and other prominent figures, thereby helping to shape the tastes of Western art during this period.
Duchamp challenged conventional thought about artistic processes and art marketing, not so much by writing, but through subversive actions such as dubbing a urinal art and naming it Fountain. He produced relatively few artworks, while moving quickly through the avant-garde circles of his time.
