"Album Picabia" added to shopping cart!Check shopping cart
This is not a catalogue raisonné. Nor is it a family album. If anything, it is an album dé-raisonné, the collage of a life commented on discreetly by its author. It is a reproduction of the world of Olga Mohler-Picabia around a mentor and a great love, Francis Picabia. A variation on the theme of Pygmalion, this album is the highly personal expression of a quarter century of learning. An intaglio portrait of Picabia through the eyes of Olga, a portrait that is at once funny, intimate, sensible and often very moving.
This work is an invitation to go on a journey through time: the Living History of Art, of Life, of the Man, of the Artist
