Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2

I chose the painting Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2 by Marcel Duschamp.  The painting was done in 1912.  The medium is oil on canvas.  The size of the painting is 4’10” by 2’11´.  It is located in the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art.  I like how abstract this painting is.  I probably would not be able to understand what the painting is trying to portray without the title.  I think this piece is so much better than the fountain (ready-made urinal).
