This is not a family album. Nor a catalogue raisonné. It is, above all, an album dé-raisonné, the collage of a life discreetly annotated by its author. It is the reproduction of Olga Mohler Picabia’s world, based on her mentor and great love, Francis Picabia. A variation on the theme of Pygmalion, it offers an intimate and sensitive intaglio portrait of the artist, sometimes surprising and often deeply moving, as seen through Olga’s eyes.
In memory of Pierre Calté (1946 - 2016) President of the Comité Picabia from 2002 to 2016
