About the ItemAn iconoclastic poet and painter, open to everything that was "other" and differentnot only in art but in the world around himFrancis Picabia never needed to define himself as modern. Like his early comrade Marcel Duchamp, he was several years ahead of Dada and Surrealism and other avant-garde movements. A follower of nothing and no one, Picabia was a true pioneer of modern art. A born innovator, he paid only a passing visit to the avant-gardes of the day and anticipated all future forms of visual expression.
About the AuthorAlain Jouffroy knew Picabia, Andre Breton and Marcel Duchamp, and his novel, La Vie reinventee, was inspired by these artistic relationships.
