Surrealism is often associated with illusionist paintings depicting an impossible reality. But surrealism is above all a way of life based upon absolute freedom of the mind. Picabia is an example of someone who lived such a life. After meeting Duchamp he began to make ‘mecanomorphic’ works; thereafter he changed his style regularly and was both for and against surrealism. And “Égoïsme”, is a masterpiece of Francis Picabia’s late abstract practice.
