    NUDE DESCENDING A STAIRCASE No. 2 is a 1912 painting by MARCEL DUCHAMP. The work is widely regarded as a Modernist classic and has become one of the most famous of its time. In its first presentation at the Parisian Salon des Indépendants, it was rejected by the Cubists and caused a huge stir during its exhibition at the 1913 Armory Show in New York. The painting combines elements of both the Cubist and Futurist movements.
