from restless apprentice painter oscillating between Fauvism and Cubism to mischievous Dadaist, editor of 391 magazine and best friend to Duchamp; from antagonist of André Breton to ally of Gertude Stein; from advocate of a new machine aesthetics to subversive photorealist painting garish nudes derived from French glamour magazines.

Picabia's bizarre, reckless contradictions and wild contrarianism are amply represented in this substantial, tri-lingual publication, which includes 200 color plates, an extensive and illustrated biography and a complete bibliography, providing the most comprehensive overview of his career currently in print.
