Fredrik Lång, B. P. (2017). The Landscapes of Duchamp : Kant in Contemporary Aestetics. Retrieved from

The text is about the relation between Leonardo da Vinci and Marcel Duchamp. It seems as if the Leonardian offshoots in Duchamp's work are more common than we might have imagined. Because the similarities are not limited to the lascivious and bearded Mona Lisa, but also extend to the androgynous approach, to machine fascination, to the rendering of anatomy as a dynamic-pneumatic mechanics and even to the use of the form element The Glider. The second part is an interpretation of the ready-mades by Duchamp via the philosophy of Immanuel Kant.

”My landscapes begin where those of da Vinci end”, Marcel Duchamp once revealed to an interviewer at some point in the 1960s. But . . . Leonardo da Vinci did not paint any landscapes, did he? Duchamp didn’t paint any landscapes either? So what did his answer mean? Did he want to give his contemporaries another riddle to mull over? Or is the answer to the riddle right in front of us?
