Early in his career, Frances Picabia was a successful impressionist landscape artist. After experimenting with various styles, he fell under the influence of Marcel Duchamp, who he met in 1911. Picabia was closely connected with the Dada movement and then with surrealism. In his oeuvre, Picabia moved effortlessly from one style to another, although later his work became more abstract. In addition to countless contributions to the avant-garde magazines, Picabia also wrote many poems and a number of scenes for ballet performances.
