Eugène Bataille (Mans, May 7, 1854 - Clermont (Oise), June 10, 1891, better known under his pseudonym Arthur Sapeck) was a French artist and illustrator who was known to travel the streets with his head painted blue[1]. In the second show of the Incoherents in 1883, 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.
