Abstract:Based mostly on close analyses and observations of a selection of paintings and collages as case studies, the study combines that approach with careful attention to archival materials, unpublished correspondence, period criticism, and the artist's own writings. The intention of this dissertation is to situate the work of one of the most influential and complex artists of the twentieth century within an analytical framework shaped in part by recent theorists and art historians while constructing an original and innovative reading of the images and their function in their original context.
