TheSpanish artist Juan Gris, b. Mar. 13, 1887, d. May 11, 1927,was, with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, one of the first and greatestexponents of the cubist idiom in painting.

Originallynamed Jose Victoriano Gonzalez, he adopted the pseudonym by which he is knownafter moving (1906) to Paris, where he lived as Picasso's friend and neighbor.Between 1907 and 1912 he watched closely the development of the cubist styleand in 1912 exhibited his Homage to Picasso (collection of Mrs.and Mrs. Leigh Block, Chicago), which established his reputation as a painterof the first rank. He worked closely with Picasso and Braque until the outbreakof World War I, adapting what had been their intuitively generated innovationsto his own methodical temperament.

In the1920s, Gris designed costumes and scenery for Serge DIAGHILEV's Ballets Russes.He also completed some of the boldest and most mature statements of his cubiststyle, with landscape-still lifes that compress interiors and exteriors intosynthetic cubist compositions, such as Le Canigou (1921;Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y.), and figure paintings, especially thefine series of clowns that includes Two Pierrots (1922; collectionof Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hecht, Beverly Hills, Calif.).
