Description for the presentation 2015-2016 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Sculpture morte is often likened to the portraits produced by Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, though it is difficult to see a face in it. The paper that serves as the ground identifies the maker of the marzipan vegetables, the confectioner Bonnevie of Perpignan. A man called Bonnevie (goodlife) creating masterpieces of “still life” (in French nature morte, or “dead nature”) could only inspire a Duchamp whose art was based on wordplay.
