Focus on Francis Picabia [27 Nov 2018]

Enigmatic, paradoxical, unclassifiable, the work of Picabia was a key element in the strong wind of change that emerged in the early 20th century, especially through the Dada movement.

The most buoyant art movements of 2005 [12 Dec 2005]

Artprice has established a ranking of art movements based on price progressions in 2005.

However, the Dadism movement lasted only eight years from 1916 to 1924 and supply remains very limited. Not a single work by Duchamp, Sophie TAEUBER-ARP or Hans ARP produced during this short period appeared at auction in 2005.
