Description for the presentation 2013-2014 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Raymond Duchamp-Villon wrote “The power of the machine is here to stay, and now we can scarcely imagine living beings without it.” With its stylised anatomy, as though in the process of a metamorphosis, Le Cheval majeur expresses the fusion of vital force and mechanical force: the nervous power of a galloping horse and a speeding train. While taking inspiration from Cubism’s multiple viewpoints of the same object, the artist reflects the Futurists’ passion for speed, dynamic forms and progress.
