About the Artist - Juan Gris

Juan Gris (1887–1927) was a Spanish painter and key figure in the development of Cubism. Born José Victoriano González-Pérez in Madrid, Gris studied engineering in Madrid and began his artistic career as an illustrator and caricaturist. He moved to Paris in 1906, where he became associated with the avant-garde art scene and befriended artists like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque.


Gris' mature style emerged during World War I when he started creating works that synthesized the principles of Analytical Cubism. His paintings displayed geometric shapes, precise lines, and a muted color palette, often featuring still lifes and interiors. Gris's analytical approach and meticulous compositions set him apart within the Cubist movement. He also contributed theoretical writings to the development of Cubism.


Tragically, Gris succumbed to uremia in 1927 at the age of 40. Despite his relatively short career, Juan Gris left a lasting legacy, influencing the course of modern art and contributing significantly to the Cubist movement.
