Marcel Duchamp and Max Ernst

The Bride Shared

David Hopkins

Clarendon Press

Clarendon Studies in the History of Art

  • unusual pairing of Duchamp and Ernst
  • both artists are central to the study of Dada, Surrealism and twentieth-century art in general
  • reading Duchamp through Ernst allows the author to reconsider hermetic themes in his work
  • draws on Postmodern and gender theory as appropriate models for this material
  • skillfully combines thematic and historical analysis
  • reconciles a traditional concentration on the esoteric interests of these artists with a new emphasis on themes such as gender and identity
