Fountain, Leonce en Lena,  Mona Lisa with a mustache automatically made me think of the word unmannered. Duchamp and Beeke aims to shock their audience with destructive elements, anti-art protests, and will for freedom! They didn’t seek for tradition or beauty but unpleasant reactions and a sense of rebellion. The words unmannered reminds me of something or someone breaking away from tradition and have a bold voice for themselves. The word manners automatically makes me think of saying excuse me, no PDA, elbows off the table while unmanners portray breaking rules, disturbance, and uneasiness. Its like taking a mustache and placing it on such a well know traditional piece, Mona Lisa.
