Surveying the use of found and mass-produced objects, materials and images in 20th-century art from Picasso's Cubist collages to the vacuum cleaner displays of Jeff Koons, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 186 diverse paintings, sculptures, assemblages and other works by Duchamp, Picabia, Man Ray, Schwitters, Cornell, Oldenburg, Warhol, Broodthaers, Armleder, Kosuth, Gober and some 40 other noted artists. Excerpts from six texts by such figures as Apollinaire, Foucault and Breton supplement four essays that provide a chronological review of the use of everyday objects in the works of the featured artists, analyze the concept of the objet d'art, examine forms of artistic and architectural appropriation in late Antiquity and the Renaissance, and describe the status of the appropriated object in current art trends.
