Marcel Duchamp, Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2 Report Abuse
This painting is a permanent exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It depicts motion by successive superimposed images. Duchamp recognized this way of painting by studying stop-motion photography. This is definitely an amazing painting for its time.

Rene Magritte, The Human Condition I Report Abuse
A brilliant painting of a painting in a window. Artists during this time period were chasing innovative ways to explore the nature of the painting and separation of the object and artistic recreation. This painting deserves credit for the idea.
