Marcel DuChamp

Marcel DuChamp was a French Dada artist who was most famous for his "ready-mades" which were found objects that DuChamp presented as art. The bicycle wheel was known as his first "ready-made" pieces. I chose this because he was literally taking the object and calling it art. He didn't change the objects in any way, which caused viewers to re-look at them.
