Francis Picabia

French, 1879 –1953. Francis Picabia was a well-known French painter and a prominent figure from the Dada movement in France and the United States. Picabia was a poet, typographist, and a painter of avant-garde style. The artist initially followed Pointillism and Impressionism and later got devoted to Cubism. Francis Picabia’s artworks were rich, planar abstract compositions with rich contrasts and colors. For a brief time, Picabia also practiced Surrealism. The painter was born in Paris and developed an early interest in arts. The artist attended the École des Arts Decoratifs with notable artists like Georges Braque and Marie Laurencin. One particular incident that took place in 1894 defined Picabia’s mastery of the art. The painter copied his father’s Spanish art collection and later switched it with the original in secrecy. Picabia later sold the original artworks to fund his stamp series. Throughout his life, the artist used styles like Fauvism, Impressionism, as well as Cubism. Francis Picabia’s Machine artworks during the end of the 1910s launched him as an avant-garde artist in Europe and America. Picabia, however, denounced both Surrealism and Dada. Picabia felt he was producing derivative artworks and older theories.
