Hamilton has described the Large Glass as ‘an epic poem, a technical treatise and a pictorial masterpiece’. In this print, he combines a diagram of the artwork with English translations of Duchamp’s notes from the Green Box, bringing together the visual and literary elements of Duchamp’s project. The Typo/Typography underlines Duchamp’s desire to create a work that required an analytical response from the viewer, rather than a purely aesthetic one.
