L.H.O.O.Q. by Marcel Duchamp is a postcard-sized reproduction of the famous Mona Lisa, but with a mustache drawn and goatee. This was Duchamp clever way of outsmarting art. Duchamp was artists that consider every move like a chess game. He was always thinking of the next move to make. This type of art is called “readymade” is when the artist takes an ordinary manufactured object and modifies it, by adding, changing them, or simply renaming them and placing them in a gallery setting.

Other ready-made works:

Fountain, 1917

Bicycle Wheel, 1917

Bottle Rack, 1917
