Francis Picabia (1879 - 1953)
ArtNexus shares a video featuring works by Francis-Marie Martínez Picabia. Born in France to a Cuban-Spanish father and a French mother, Picabia studied at the École des Beaux Arts and the School of Decorative Arts in Paris. Towards the end of the first decade of the Twentieth Century, he was associated with Cubism and became a member of the Puteaux group, where he met Marcel Duchamp. After living in New York and Barcelona, Picabia returned to Paris and devoted himself fully to Dadaism.

Some of Picabia's most important contributions, however, took place in the journals "391", which he launched in Barcelona in 1917, and "491", launched in Paris in collaboration with André Breton. Starting in 1919, Picabia was close to the Surrealist group, and in 1924 he created a famous set design for René Clair's film Entr'acte.
