About this artwork

While Picabia was considered the public face of the Dada movement, and his earliest acclaimed works reflect Cubist influences, in the 1920s he turned to a figurative style. Between 1928 and 1932, he developed a body of work, called Transparencies, featuring multiple layers of transparent images, full of wistfulness and melancholy.
