This publication is the first of four volumes in the catalogue raisonné of Francis Picabia (1879–1953), one of the most significant, challenging artists of the 20th century. The works in Volume I range from Picabia’s early pieces as an Impressionist in the 1890s to his Cubist and abstract paintings of 1912–14, which constitute landmarks in the history of modern art. This volume allows for new critical and scientific readings of his work and piques interest in his lesser-known pieces. Along with illustrations of each featured work, the book includes an introduction, chronology, bibliography, list of exhibitions, and indices.


William A. Camfield is professor emeritus of art history, Rice University. Arnauld Pierre is professor of art history, Université Paris-Sorbonne. Candace Clements is affiliate professor of art history, University of Houston, and research associate of the Comité Picabia. Beverley Calté is an independent scholar.

‘This series promises to be a fascinating investigation of an unpredictable, innovative artist, whose work frustrated and perplexed supporters and opponents over course of a productive life.’—Alexander Adams, Art Newspaper.
