Did I go completely pun-crazy with this post’s title or what? But this is an art blog, it’s Father’s Day, and we have a portrait by Marcel Duchamp – famous Dadaist - of his father! So how perfect is that? I considered “Dada’s Dada”, “Daddy of a Dada”, “Who’s Your Dada?”, and a few others. Man, I’m silly. Anyway, it’s one of Duchamp’s earlier works and an impressive painting. The sitting pose, the palette, I think it all works marvelously. Although not representative of Dada, it’s still Marcel’s dada <—- Ok, somebody stop me with all this Dada stuff!
Marcel Duchamp’s Portrait of the Artist’s Father, 1910:
My dad is gone is almost seven years Still miss him so much.
Happy Father’s Day to all you Museworthy guys out there. Remember that you are loved, appreciated, and irreplaceable.
Hugs and kisses . . .
