Wilhelm Albert Vladimir Apollinaris Kostrowitzky was a French poet, playwright, short story writer, novelist, and art critic who became famous for his experimental verse. Apollinaire was an important part of several avant-garde movements in French literature and art at the start of the twentieth century. His work is often concerned with the clash between the modern and the traditional, often juxtaposing drastically different stylistic elements. He is shown in a portrait with his accomplices and friends.
