On Nudity Across Time

 This photograph from a fantastic set of photographs by Japanese photographer Shinichi Maruyama reminded me of (and was apparently inspired by) Duchamp's (1912) famous painting Nude Descending A Staircase, #2, which is, like so many of Duchamp's greatest works, now in the Arensburg Collection at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This photo was created exactly 100 years after Duchamp's painting, and has almost the same name: Nude #2.
