Ceci N'est Pas Un Scrap

Two weeks after that celebrated affair, Picasso attended another legendary event, Tristan Tzara's Evening of the Bearded Heart at the Théâtre Michel. The night began peaceably enough with music by Stravinsky, Georges Auric, and Darius Milhaud, but it soon degenerated into a violent brawl between the Dadaists and the Surrealists, and the police had to intervene. Picasso thoroughly enjoyed that evening.

The rest is here.
