Curiosities: hidden identities...


Some artists kept their true identities hidden throughout their entire careers. Others, sometimes and for certain works, used pseudonysms to avoid being recognised.
One of the most famous examples is that of Marcel Duchamp (France, 1887-1968), who sometimes took photographs of himself dressed as the character Rrose Sélavy.
