Minor variation in the action of the dart and the pose of the hands, also in the fall of the hair, here worn in a fringe on the forehead; the butterflies on the halo omitted, but one is poised on the apple.†Surtees, p. 99-100"

The Case of Duchamp and Poincar&233; / Symposium Articles


Poincaré also wrote about non-Euclidean and four-dimensional geometry, and Duchamp’s notes indicate that these ideas intrigued him. He especially liked the notion of getting three-dimensional perspective on four-dimensional objects, rather like the way a set of 2D representations, such as photographs taken from different angles, can be used to visualize 3D objects. Shearer thinks that these geometrical ideas influenced Duchamp’s ready-mades–or, rather, his photographs of them, as most of the originals have been lost.
