Further information on this artwork

Dreiviertelfiguren mutmaßlich einer jungen Frau mit ihrer Tochter in inniger, doch trister Haltung. Die Entstehung vermuten wir in der Zeit um 1930. Seitliche Knicke und Einrisse, zur Beschreibung nicht entrahmt.

Durch Francis Picabia an seinen Freund Paul Éluard (1891-1968; siehe rückseitige Widmung). Die Zeichnung zeigt vermutlich die Frau und die 1918 geborene Tochter Cécile von Paul Éluard, wobei seine Frau sich 1932 wegen Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) von Éluard scheiden ließ. (1251344) (13)

Francis Picabia,
1879 Paris – 1953
DOUBLE PORTRAITCharcoal on paper.
Visible size: 72.5 x 53.5 cm.
Signed lower left “Francis Picabia”. Aperture in backboard revealing dedication to Paul Éluard with signature on the reverse “pour celui qui le garde ou regarde”.
Framed with mount under glass.

Three-quarter length figures, probably of a young mother with her daughter in an intimate, yet depressing posture. Probably created around ca. 1930. Folds and tears along the sides. Not examined out of frame.

Dedicated by Francis Picabia to his friend Paul Éluard (1891-1968; see dedication on the reverse). The drawing probably shows the wife of Paul Éluard and her daughter Cécile born in 1918. In 1932 she divorced Éluard for Salvador DalÍ (1904-1989).
