Francis Picabia – I am a Monster…

In relation to our current exhibition with German painter Anton Henning, Olle Granath, former Director of the Moderna Museet, and the National Museum, gives us a a close portrait of the charismatic artist Francis Picabia (1879-1953). Picabia, close friend to Duchamp, was a restless pioneer in Dada, constantly striving for total artistic freedom, while challenging the good taste with his nude portraits.
