|Two giants who were friends|
The other smashing exhibition at the RA was one that centred on the friendship between Dali and Duchamp.
|The Double 'D's'|
Dali is the more famed public figure but it can be argued that Duchamp is the more significant in terms of the Art world.
There were some amazing things to see like Hamilton's restoration of Marcel Duchamps 'The Bride Stripped Bare..'
I was also interested to see a work by Dali (Sistine Madonna) which used dots in much the same way as Robert Lichenstein did later on.
There was quite a bit of work by Duchamp including (of course) another copy of the 'Fountain', the other readymade 'bottle rack' was there too .
|Useful RA notes|
For me the elephant in the room was the lack of 'etant donnes' which is in Philadelphia and doesn't travel.
The exhibition sort of ties into the Jasper Johns exhibition which is also currently hosted by the RA.
