Francis Picabia

Born in Paris in 1879 of Cuban-Spaniard and French heritage Francis Picabia was an artist like none other. It was in New York where he achieved fame as the leader of the European avant-garde movement. He is best known today as an irreverent Dadist that defies categorization with works ranging from impressionist landscapes to abstraction, paintings of machines to photo-based nudes, performance, film to poetry and publishing. Images are from the exhibit at the Museum of modern Art in New York.
