In 1919, Duchamp performed a seemingly adolescent prank using a postcard that represented this ideal of feminine beauty.. He drew a mustache and goatee on her face and added the letters “L.H.O.O.Q.” The caption combines Duchamp’s gleeful sense of wit with his love of wordplay: means (“There is fire down below”). The image trespasses traditional boundaries of appropriation by presenting a reproduction, however tarted up, as an original work of art. He rebelled against everything that art represented, particularly the appeal to tradition and beauty. The term “rectified and readymade” indicates that the artist has altered a found, mass-produced object.
