L.2013.6.3: 291, no. 5/6 (July/August 1915)
The arts and literary magazine 291 took its name from Alfred Stieglitz's pioneering gallery in New York. Issue 5/6 features Picabia's symbolic portraits of the magazine's founders as machine parts. Pages 2–4, which fold out as a triple spread, include a drawing of a spark plug captioned "Portrait of a Nude Young American Girl" (possibly meant to represent Agnes Meyer); a contraption reminiscent of automobile electrical wiring diagrams is labeled "de Zayas," the name of a Mexican-born writer and avant-garde caricaturist associated with Stieglitz's gallery, who was also among the magazine's patrons.
