The Many Lives of Duchamp's Large Glass

Kendell Geers’s ”Stripped Bare” (2009), a very contemporary take on a classic of modern art, was shot across the internet as the publicity image for his upcoming lecture at Philadelphia’s Institute for Contemporary Art. It’s a reference to Marcel Duchamp’s masterpiece “The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass)” (1915–23), which is housed across town at another Philly institution, the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Getty Search Gateway

Getty Search Gateway | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The Getty Search Gateway allows users to search across several of the Getty repositories, including collections databases, library catalogs, collection inventories, and archival finding aids.

This tool is designed to help researchers, scholars, and educators discover the variety of resources available across the Getty's collections, which include collections in each the four programs: the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Foundation, and the Getty Research Institute. Users can use the tool to browse our collections broadly, by type of resource (i.e., paintings, books, archives), or to search directly for assets related to very specific subjects—historical periods, artists, object types, etc.

While users can search some of these collections individually using online search engines associated with the specific repository, Getty Search Gateway brings records from several of these databases together under one umbrella. Most of these repositories are not searchable through the Getty website's search tool, and some are only searchable here through Getty Search Gateway.
