Marcel Duchamp, Nude Descending a Staircase. Addressing what he later called “the problem of motion in painting,” Duchamp here repeats elements of the nude’s body in her final steps down a precipitous spiral staircase. This evocation of elapsed time in a static composition resonates with the Futurist works of Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, and others.
