duchamp heads, i need help

Recommended Posts

Guest BROWNer

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'..

anyone???

please..

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..

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.

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.

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.

ah shite.

oh well, thanks for trying dude, mucho appreciated.

tt, don't worry about it, i have a super puneball flick

of it that i mentioned above that i have decided to

settle for, if anything. its dope cuz its a front view

and a profile view.

i'll just scan that biatch at a mega-res.

thanks anyways man.

 

ps-mamerro, i'm glad you like it. it's a little hectic, but

ill. you should still go out and get 94diskont though...

it's more like most other oval stuff you've heard, but probably

the best of the bunch..ovalcommers is the mold breaker kind of.

peaceballsz.
