Juan Gris – Hommage á Pablo Picasso

Portrait of Pablo Picasso, 1912

Oil on canvas, 93.3 x 74.4 cm

Juan Gris (1887) was a Spanish painter and sculptor who lived and worked in France most of his life. His works are closely connected to the emergence of an  innovative artistic genre — cubism.

In Paris, Gris followed the lead of another friend and fellow countryman, Pablo Picasso. This portrait  is a significant early cubist painting done by a painter other than Picasso or Georges Braque.
