José Victoriano González (Madrid, 1887 - Paris, 1927), who went under the pseudonym “Juan Gris”, was a key figure in the gestation and evolution of the Cubist movement. His work focused on a reworking of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque's analytical and hermetic Cubism, whereby instead of Cubism being an episode and turning point, as it was for Picasso and Braque, for Gris it was the axis in which his work rotated around. Gris devoted his brief life to the construction of a new art form that surely led him to rediscover the pictorial qualities of ancient art, thus gaining an understanding of the classical traditions of French painting.
