ar­cel Duchamp aimed to de­sacralise the world’s most fa­mous art­work by us­ing it as his can­vas for the ultimate act of Dada icon­o­clasm. In 1919, on a cheap re­pro­duc­tion of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Duchamp sketched a mous­tache and beard, then wrote five let­ters - LHOOQ - be­neath. Read aloud, they spell out ‘ Elle a chaud au cul’. This ver­sion was ex­e­cuted in Septem­ber 1964 in a num­bered edi­tion of 35. www.sothe­bys.com
