Public domain US ← → Love Parade Francis Picabia Original Title: Parade Amoureuse Date: 1917 Style: Dada Genre: figurative Media: oil, canvas Location: Private Collection References: www.theartstory.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Picabia's mechanomorphic pictures suggest analogies between machines and the human form. To contemporary viewers they were scandalous in their rejection of the idea of the human soul and their emphasis instead on instincts and compulsions - both often erotic. In this work, Picabia blended male and female; the upper part in red might be considered female and the lower part in blue, male. The viewer can imagine the sound of hammering and the idea of a "sonorous sculpture," or a musical instrument. - See more at: http://www.theartstory.org/artist-picabia-francis.htm#sthash.xchIYynP.dpuf Francis Picabia Famous works Portrait of Jeanne Marie Bourgeois Francis Picabia · 1907 Dances at the Spring Francis Picabia · 1912 Very Rare Picture of Earth Francis Picabia · 1915 Machine Turn Quickly Francis Picabia · 1917 Love Parade Francis Picabia · 1917 Balance Francis Picabia · 1919 Villica safe Francis Picabia · 1929 Aello Francis Picabia · 1930 Adam and Eve Francis Picabia · 1931 Self Portrait Francis Picabia · 1940 Women and Bulldog Francis Picabia · 1941 - 1942 Two Women with Poppies Francis Picabia · 1942 - 1944 View all 125 artworks Related Artworks Self-Portrait Assemblage Man Ray Nut Girls (Les Filles des Noix) Man Ray Promenade Man Ray Untitled Abstract Man Ray Untitled (The Three Graces) Man Ray A Night at Saint Jean Man Ray Telephone Morton Shamberg Invention Man Ray Orquesta Sinfonica Man Ray Swamp legend Paul Klee Temple Gardens Paul Klee Six species Paul Klee Twittering Machine Paul Klee Seventeen Paul Klee Tale of Hoffmann Paul Klee Castle and Sun Paul Klee Pisces Man Ray Dieser Stern lehrt beugen Paul Klee Shakespearean Equation: Twelfth Night Man Ray Diderot's Harpsichord or The Merchant of Venice Man Ray 1 Load more Advertisement.
