Raymond Duchamp-Villon was the elder brother of Marcel
Duchamp and younger brother of Jacques Villon. From 1898 his sculpture
was under the influence of Rodin, but he later came to sympathize with
Cubist ideals, and, with his brothers, exhibited at the Section d'Or. From
1912 to 1914 there is a series of Horses which have something of the quality of
a Cubist manifesto, combined with Boccioni's interest in movement. He was
gassed in 1916 and died two years later.
There is one of the Horse series (1914)
in Paris (Mus. d'Art Mod.), and another work in London (Tate).
