Picabia’s Women: Francis Picabia’s ‘Portrait de Femme’

Executed during the beginning of the 1940s after relocating to the South of France, ‘Portrait de Femme’ belongs to Francis Picabia’s series of flirtatious depictions of women. The photorealist quality of this series, combining both imitation and parody, betrayed an interest with mass media, popular culture, and authenticity which would become central to the work of multiple generations of artists. This work will be offered in our 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale in New York on 2 July 2020.
