‘Egoism’ and ‘Danger de la Force’ by Francis Picabia
‘Egoism’ and ‘Danger de la Force’ by Francis Picabia were both suffering from loosening of the paint layers, which have now been consolidated. Additionally, the piece of hardboard on which ‘Egoism’ is painted had become bent. It was therefore fitted with a framework on the back so that it can travel safely in its original frame. The two paintings were shown in a major retrospective of Picabia’s work at the Kunsthaus Zürich and at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
