  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1964, Duchamp recovered a group of 79 unpublished notes (dating from 1914-23) concerning the Large Glass that had been excluded from his original selection of notes for the Green Box, 1934. As most of the notes were written in the infinitive, he titled this publication A l'Infinitif.

    Jacqueline Matisse Monnier and the Association Marcel Duchamp have confirmed the authenticity of this artwork and will issue a certificate to the buyer.
