His Most Famous Painting – Nude Descending a Staircase, Number 2 – Marcel Duchamp

Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), the most influential figure of the ‘Contemporary Art,’ was recognized for his strongly expressed contempt for the field of conventional ‘Fine Arts.’ He was in a way related to ‘Surrealist Movement,’ the descendant of ‘Cubism.’ Duchamp’s methodology and themes however, were not well received by ‘Cubists.’ This led to his inclination towards the ‘Dada Movement.’ “Nu descendant un escalier n° 2 (Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2)” was Marcel’s most famous as well as scandalous ‘Dadaist’ work, which also became a turning point of his life.

Duchamp created “Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2″ work with great enthusiasm, in the year 1912. This path-breaking piece is a large 57.88″ X 35.12” oil work on canvas and currently hangs in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This monochromic work, mainly in yellow and its shades, is quiet a ‘Cubist’ painting through its geometric representation rather than figurative. What really sets it apart is the spirit of ‘Futuristic Art’ infused in it. This painting hardly has any background, except the allusion to the dark ‘staircase.’ Instead of an embodiment of sensuality, this painting is composed of around twenty or so images of a mechanically structured figure, arranged in a sequence over the ‘staircase.’

In line with the ‘Cubist’ style, the bright figure, silhouetted against a dark background, is hard to distinguish as either male or female, structurally. The sequence of images exemplifies the changing postures of the figure as it descends the staircase, a concept very similar to the composition of a stroboscopic motion picture, which actually is a sequence of stills. “Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2” is definitely a result of keen observation and diligence. It carries an element of raw force of energy and futuristic vision.

This revolutionary ‘Futurism’ and unorthodox methodology drew a lot of opposition and negative reviews in its debut show at the Paris Salon des Indépendants, in 1912. Another reason for the poor response and eventually the rejection of the painting was the backdrop of the covert, contemptuous emotions behind this work. Annoyed Duchamp re-presented the painting at the International Exhibition of Modern Art in 1913. It again received criticism because of the common belief that it was a mere caricature of the much-revered subject of nudity, which lacked artistic aesthetics.

Loved or hated, public attention to “Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2” refused to slacken. It became a subject of many American parodies, including musicals, books, and paintings. This history remarkably justifies the words of William Hazlitt, “When a thing ceases to be a subject of controversy, it ceases to be a subject of interest.”

Immigration Lawyer’s Notebook – The Startup Visa Act of 2010

Working as a San Francisco immigration lawyer, I’m interested in how immigration policy may help or hurt the struggling economy. A bi-partisan bill, The Startup Visa Act of 2010, has been introduced by Senator John Kerry (D- Mass) and Senator Richard Luger (R-Ind). The bill is intended to assist global entrepreneurs in obtaining U.S. visas.

This isn’t a simple open door policy. A foreign entrepreneur may be granted a temporary two-year visa (presently designated as an EB-6 visa) if they are able and willing to invest $250,000 in a business that they are going to startup. This may lead to a permanent visa.

To be eligible for a permanent legal status, the entrepreneur must have achieved one of the following after two years:

• Have created five full time jobs in the U.S.

• Managed to raise $1 million in additional investment cash.

• Generated $1 million in revenue.

It has been endorsed by over 160 venture capitalists from around the world. This bill can, of course, have an impact on the economy in the San Francisco area as well as my practice as an immigration lawyer. At this point it’s difficult to estimate how many entrepreneurs may take advantage of this opportunity.

This could really have an impact on immigration from China. A recent article on reported that a MIT study found that China has a higher rate of entrepreneurship than Europe and the U.S. They also have a high rate of business founders that are focused on high-growth. Those working in the high-growth area are starting companies that have at least 20 employees.

In recent years, European countries have been focusing on encouraging more high-growth entrepreneurship. Over the past five years, European countries have been working to create better business conditions such as tax incentive to encourage entrepreneurs.

This bill is designed to bring innovators and job creators to the country. It’s hoped that the U.S. economy, workers and consumers will benefit from The Startup Visa Act of 2010. As an immigration lawyer in San Francisco, I expect to see this law debated as is always the case with any change in immigration policy.
