Superimposed, Francis Picabia

"Mélibée" by Francis Picabia
“Mélibée” by Francis Picabia

I’ve been coming across a lot of work by Francis Picabia that I was previously unfamiliar with. I knew who he was, but had really only seen his early Dada work and mechanical/machine inspired paintings (like the first couple of images below) until recently. I liked the work I’d seen, but didn’t really pay too much attention.

Well, Picabia has a new exhibit at the MoMA called “Our Heads Are Round so Our Thoughts Can Change Direction” and I have a whole new appreciation for his work. I haven’t been to the show in person, but I am very impressed by the reproductions of Picabia’s work that I’ve seen, and the reviews that I’ve read. I especially enjoy the work I was unfamiliar with… all of these beautiful superimposed image paintings. Love ’em!

Didn’t think I’d be posting for a little bit, but definitely wanted to save and share these images.

Today I’m going to post a number of paintings by Russian born painter, Pavel Tchelitchew. So awesome, I’d like to post every picture of his that I can find. But, maybe I’ll just add additional posts dedicated to his work later instead.

Love ’em!

Deer Eating Yggdrasil

DeerEatingYggdrasil

I wanted to save this panel and portal from Urnes Stave Church. Something about the way Yggdrasil‘s tree branches wrap and grow, with the deer eating at it’s roots, seems very beautiful and is exactly what I want to see today.

Max Ernst’s World of Moss, Fern and Forest

"The Last Forest", by Max Ernst, 1969

Max Ernst is definitely one of my favorite painters, and I especially love his invention and work with grattage. Check these out!

This is the way the things will look when moss, fern and forest cover the human world.

Rams, Goat and Baboon

"Têtes de Béliers" by Pablo Picasso
“Têtes de Béliers” by Pablo Picasso

I came across this lithograph of rams (above) by Picasso earlier this week that I really like. Picasso has drawn, painted and sculpted many great pieces of art featuring animals, and I enjoy having them here on ArtDuh. I saw the sculptures of his goat and baboon (below) in person a long time ago, and wanted to see them in today’s post too. I especially love that the baboon’s head is made from a little toy car.
