Biography:
Brother of Marcel Duchamp and Jacques Villon, Raymond Duchamp-Villon began his education as a medical student at the University of Paris. After a bout with illness in 1898, he was forced to switch career paths and took up sculpture. Self-taught, he worked in a variety of styles before adopting Cubism in 1910. Meetings held in his studio resulted in the formation of the Section d’Or group. Duchamp-Villon enlisted in the army in 1914 as an auxiliary doctor where he contracted typhoid fever in 1916. He struggled with the illness for two years before dying in a military hospital in 1918. HE is remembered for his sculpture, The Horse, which showed great potential as an example of Cubist sculpture.
