Capture a dreamlike painting 

Artist – Ray Jones

Following his break with the Parisian avant-garde in 1924, Francis Picabia (1897-1953) moved to the French Riviera in southern France, soon thereafter beginning to work on his radical Transparencies paintings. The painter occupied himself with the series from circa 1927 to 1933, and the result was a body of work that draws elements from and refers to a wealth of sources, weaving together biblical and mythological subjects, disparate forms in multiple dimensions, cool and warm nuances, glazed and opaque strata, and flawless as well as imperfect geometries and sensuous lines.
