From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Sapeck (Eugène Bataille) (Mans, May 7, 1854 - Clermont (Oise), June 10, 1891) was a French artist and illustrator who was known to travel the streets with his head painted blue. In the first show of the Incoherents in 1882, he contributed an 'augmented' Mona Lisa (Mona Lisa Smoking a Pipe) that directly prefigures the famous Marcel Duchamp image L.H.O.O.Q. of 1919.
