Marcel Duchamp Etching Coffee Grinder 1947 Ed. Published by Du Cubisme

Marcel Duchamp (French 1887-1968)- ''Coffee Grinder''- etching, 1912, as published in 1947 as a part of 'Du Cubisme' in an edition of 455 copies. Pencil numbered on bottom “117”.
Duchamp (1887-1968) etched this print for Du Cubisme after the same-titled oil painting he had made in 1911 for his brother, sculptor Raymond Duchamp-Villon (1876-1918). 

"Duchamp painted Coffee Grinder for his brother, the sculptor Raymond Duchamp-Villon, who, at the time of his wedding, asked a number of his artist friends to make small works to decorate his kitchen. As Duchamp later recollected: 'I made this old-fashioned coffee mill for him. It shows the different facets of the coffee grinding operation and the handle on top is seen simultaneously in several positions as it revolves. You can see the ground coffee in a heap under the cogwheels of the central shaft, which turns in the directions of the arrow on top.' (d'Harnoncourt and McShine, p.256.)"
