Baroness Elsa Von Freytag- Loringhoven
Known as the Father of Modern Art Marcel Duchamp was credited for the invention of conceptual art through his displaying of the ready made. However, Duchamp with all his whimsical DADA intent forgot to mention that "The Fountain" who was credited to R. Mutt was indeed not his pseudonym but that of a Polish Born German artist who was well known in NewYork in the early teens of the 20th Century and she had been making ready mades for several years including "The Fountain". What ever became of Baroness Elsa? Check out this video. She still lives within all those forgotten artists who have been overlooked.
Stay tune in upcoming months as the inspiration of Elsa as the spirit of this Dada Moma
