1887 - 1927
Originally trained in math and physics, Juan Gris moved to Paris in 1906, where he met Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque and became involved in the Cubist movement.
Gris took a highly mathematical approach to Cubist painting, rendering discrete forms with precision and exactitude, the resulting images almost resembling technical drawings.Gris also experimented with Pointillism in works such as Newspaper and Fruit Dish (1916), and often alluded to earlier artists such as Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Paul Cézanne through both style and subject matter.
