New Duchamp Urinals Discovered

More replicas of Marcel Duchamp’s infamous Fountain urinals have turned up on the European art market, and these fountains could fetch quite the pretty penny. The new urinals turned up in Italy, according to The Economist, and are traced back to Arturo Schwarz, Duchamp’s friend who helped him make other replicas nearly 50 years ago. Schwarz, now an 86-year-old art dealer based in Milan, claims the additional copies were also made with Duchamp's original replicas in 1964, but were not included in the original edition due to their imperfections. Schwarz is reportedly selling his copy of the four for $2.5 million.
