The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass). (1915-23). Oil, varnish, lead foil, lead wire, and dust on two glass panels. 109 1/4″ x 69 1/4″. Philadelphia Museum of Art.

At midnight on New Year’s Eve, all works first published in the United States in 1923 will enter the public domain. It has been 21 years since the last mass expiration of copyright in the U.S.

So, for example, Duchamp’s “The Bride stripped Bare…” will be in the public domain in the U.S.
