  Artist: PICABIA, Francis
  Date: 1928

  Notes: Original title is "Sotileza". Several different images are layered on top of one another. There are three interpenetrating but distinct layers: the Spanish lady in a lace mantilla depicted in a deliberately kitsch style; an outline drawing of a matador in full costume; and a simplified representation of a Madonna, crowned in the Catalan Romanesque style.
