You may have seen this iconic silhouette of Duchamp before. Duchamp’s Self-Portrait in Profile (1957) was originally created for Robert Lebel’s “Sur Marcel Duchamp” (1959). Duchamp used zinc stencils to tear sheets of paper. 137 hand-torn silhouettes were then mounted to the deluxe editions of Lebel’s monograph. You may learn more about “Sur Marcel Duchamp” in our current installation Duchamp as an Open Book.
