Marcel Duchamp met Lydie Sarazin-Levassor at the end of March 1927. On 7 June, they were married. Francis Picabia acted as a witness and the ceremony was filmed by Man Ray. On 25 January 1928, they divorced. Lydie Sarazin-Levassor tells the story of their marriage, presents us with “her” Marcel, and relates her encounters with Jacques Doucet, Constantin Brancusi, Henri-Pierre Roché, Man Ray and Kiki de Montparnasse, Jean Cocteau, the Ballets Russes, the Duchamp family, Jean Crotti, Mary Rumsey, Katherine Dreier and Robert Desnos, and describes the atmosphere at the Villons’ (in Puteaux, just outside Paris), the Picabias’ (at Mougins, in the South of France) and the Sarazin-Levassors’ (in Étretat, on the Normandy coast).
