Happy birthday to Alexander Archipenko, who was born in Ukraine in 1887. Archipenko used collage elements in this low-relief “sculpto-painting,” including a photograph of himself wearing a hat, which sits on the dressing table.“In the Boudoir (Before the Mirror),” 1915, by Alexander Archipenko (© Estate of Alexander Archipenko/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York)
