    does anyone have a scannable picture of Jean Crotti's
    sculpture portrait of duchamp????? preferably an immaculate
    reproduction if possible, but i'll take anything right now..
    its the one made of wire with fabric, some hair, and 2
    porcelain eyeballs......?
    i looked through 27 google image pages plus numerous
    other duchamp and crotti related sites and still could not
    find it......which is freaking me out..cuz its not that obscure..
    i'm not that sure what its actually called other than
    'portrait of duchamp'..

    Ce ci n'est pas un post.

    sorry bro. I can help. Have you tried the library?
    I'm sure that a certain 'School of Higher Learning' in your City
    must have an extensive art section in the library.

    i have briefly leafed through relevant stuff at the library with
    no luck. i have a picture of the piece, but its a really crap
    repro and really small, so no good for scanner styles..
    i can't freaking believe that this piece isn't online..fucked up..
  4. Shit, I can probably look for one at the RISD library this weekend, just gotta remind me of it. I'll see what I can do.

    heh heh...nice work sherlock..something along those lines,
    haven't decided exactly on that piece though...
    is it just me or is it really weird that that piece
    isn't on the net? i'm so used to being able to
    reconnoiter like a mofo and find shit..
    anyhow...mams, that would be fucking great,
    maximum gratitude. btw, are you still needing
    that balloon song?
    tearz..bro, you know a motherload hook up
    is coming your way..surprises will be in order.

    thanks bros.

  9. That's exactly what I was thinking of, Browner... the picture in exchange for the balloon song. Dealism?

    Edit: I'm banking on this. It truly is weird that there isn't much more on this piece around.

    well, i just got back from a 3.5 hour investigation of all the
    logical book repositories in my city & came up with squatski.
    one 'sketch' of it, which was sketched incredibly light..no good.
    ..and a super puney sized 2 flick repro..the frontal
    view and a second profile view(dope but both way too small)..
    all three were b&w too..
    bum bum.

    Dear Browner,

    If I think of it, next time I'm up at school I'll do some searching through the stacks.

    illski. thanks.

    bumpy knuckles.
  14. Brownerino, no dice. The only mention of the work in the entire library (the link I posted) had a few pictures of it, but all were about 2"x3" big and in black and white and not the greatest quality. I don't know what to say, it's really really strange that there's nothing else.

    On a lighter note, I purchased ovalcommers, which is absolute fucking greatness. thanks for the suggestion.
