Francis Picabia

by Donald Kuspit

. . . we are a few men who, every morning on waking up, would like to consult Picabia as a marvelous barometer showing atmospheric changes during the night.
-- André Breton,
“Francis Picabia,” 1922(1)

This painter [Cézanne] has the brains of a fruit vendor. . . . If we had been under other influences [than Cézanne’s], maybe we wouldn’t have eaten so many apples.

-- Francis Picabia,
with André Breton’s comment, 1934(2)
