This architectural Christmas card features an inside joke just for art history majors.  The abstract nude from Marcel DuChamp’s famous French Cubist painting, “Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2” is replaced by a cheerful illustration of a snowman in top hat and scarf, descending an architectural blueprint of a staircase. DuChamp’s painting was rejected by the “hanging committee” for display in the Salon des Indépendant’s Spring exhibition of 1912, who were scandalized by the combination of his painting and title. The art selection committee criticized the piece for being more “Futurist” than “Cubist”, and asserted that “A nude never descends the stairs—a nude reclines.

About 102 years later, our little Futurist Snowman Descending a Staircase is born. Naturally, since he is wearing a scarf, we don’t think anyone will find this little guy controversial. Rather, we expect he will bring a smile to all of your clients, vendors, friends and family when you share your holiday greetings this year.

And if you happen to be looking for a more fully clothed snowman, you might want to take a look at our guy In the Field – as he’s wearing a pocket protector in addition to his cap and scarf! And you’ll find many more architecture Christmas cards sorted by power search tag here.
