Francis Picabia: Fleurs de chair, fleurs d'ame
Library Shelf Location 18.PICA
Publication Date 1997
Description Picabia’s career was characterised by his irreverent wit and his iconoclastic attitude towards tradition and high art. He famously declared his intention to change his ideas “as often as one would change one’s shirt”. He embraced numerous artistic styles – including Dadaist mechanomorphism, realism and abstraction – in quick succession. Irony, humour and a distrust of artistic movements informed his work throughout his career. Picabia’s interest in the subversive power of eroticism was illustrated by the sexual connotations of his early machine works, then climaxed in the late nudes.
