Self Portrait in Profile by Duchamp

This is Self Portrait in Profile by Marcel Duchamp. This is a screenprint done in 1959 and can be seen in the MoMA collection. This intrigued me at first because it looks like a random cut out of a piece of paper if you just glance at it. Then you come to realize it is the profile of a person. Duchamp considered this the profile of a person but also a portrait.
