PICABIA ET LA COTE D'AZUR (Picabia and the Cote d'Azur). Musee d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain, Nice, 1991. 184 pp. with 196 ills. (87 col.). 27 x 24 cm. ISBN 2901412424 In French.
Surveying the highly varied works produced by Francis Picabia (1879-1953) from 1925 to 1945 during his residence in southern France after the breakup of the Dada movement, this catalogue features fine reproductions of some 110 paintings and drawings (many previously unexhibited), including distinctive surrealistic compositions of superimposed images, enigmatic portrait studies and kitsch-like nudes. Several reprinted texts by Picabia supplement seven essays discussing his diverse artistic interests, the anarchistic elements reflected in his experimental techniques and theoretical writings, and the significance of specific transitions in his work during the period.
