horde of destructions

Pablo Picasso said that a painting was "une somme de destructions."

Wallace Stevens in “The Main With The Blue Guitar,” translated this to mean "a horde of destructions":

    Is this picture of Picasso’s, this "horde
    Of destructions," a picture of ourselves,

    Now an image of society?
