Rich in imagery and historical references, Francis Picabia’s ‘Atrata’ is a mystic vision made of layer upon layer of overlapping imagery. In this episode of Anatomy of an Artwork, discover where Picabia drew his inspiration from and see how those overlapping layers reveal a variety of faces, figures, fruit and foliage. ‘Atrata’ is a highlight of our upcoming Surrealist Art Evening Sale (26 February London).
