Early in his career, Francis Picabia experimented with a variety of styles, including Impressionism and Cubism. In 1911, he met Marcel Duchamp, who had an important influence on his work. Picabia was closely involved with the Dada movement and then briefly with Surrealism. Picabia switched effortlessly between a variety of styles, but later his works became more abstract. In addition to his numerous contributions to avant-garde magazines, Picabia also wrote many poems and several scenarios for ballets.
