I think the issue with Picabia wasn't that he was considered dilettantish (because of the multiple styles) but that he was considered bad (because of the erotic nudes, etc). He wasn't revived until the Salle/Schnabel generation insisted on a fresh look at this "artist gone bad."
It's tough out there for artists, which this writer sort of seems to recognize.
Yes Picabia thing off there...I mean, he was a wise guy Dadist...Did people really take his approach to painting seriously? Bad, yes... for better or worse, but differently than late..(meaning last 50 plus years of his life) DeChirico..
But excellent article.....just sent to Grad class to read....keep em coming Bill...need help!
Exactly. Dadaist, not careerist. It is tough out there. Via s Theodore fb.
