Sheet: 70.3 x 100.1 cm (27 11/16 x 39 7/16 in.)

John L. Severance Fund and Gift of Diane and Arthur Stupay 1999.16



In 1991, Diane and Arthur Stupay gave the museum eight screenprinted plexiglas panels, which can be arranged in any order, entitled, Not Wanting to Say Anything about Marcel. In 1999 the ensemble was completed when the same donors gave the accompanying lithograph. "Marcel" refers to artist Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), who rebelled against all established artistic conventions, helping to shape the anti-art, anti-aesthetic character of the Dada movement in the second decade of the 20th century. Cage retained a similar devotion of the idiosyncratic and to chance.
