    • Francis Picabia may have the claim to have painted the first abstract picture. A watercolour picture from 1908/9 which is now in the Mus. d'Art Mod., Paris, would pre-date Kandinsky.

      He joined the Section d'Or Cubists in 1912, thence Dadaism and in 1924 Surrealism.

      He painted anatomically precise nudes forsale in Algiers. He went to the US several times and exhibited at the Armory Show.

      With Duchamp he founded American Dada.

      Was a close friend of Gertrude Stein.

      Was an avid collector of cars.
