I understand Duchamps' 'Fountain' was actually lost or destroyed 
shortly after the original exhibition. I doubt he really took it that 
seriously and didn't think anyone would actually want to *buy* it! I 
believe in the 1920s he created a limited edition of 'Fountains' and 
signed them all. These are the ones now on show around the world.

He did quite a number of photographic experiments with Man Ray.
