Nude Descending Staircase

Drawing art classics from memory. It's great fun to try to remember a classic seen many times. Here's Duchampi's <i>Nude Descending a Staircase #2</i> 1912 from memory. Turns out my memory of this one isn't very sharp. More in this set

I saw a guy wearing a fat suit in a restaurant in Maryland.
It’s a air-filled bag covering the body from head to foot.
What an amazing product. Don’t we all want one of these in our closet?
Gradually, the other figures accumulated on this page in my notebook.
