  • Juan Gris. La fenêtre ouverte (Open Window), 1921. Painting. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía Collection, Madrid
    8 february, 2001 - 7 april, 2001

    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.

    The exhibition the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía dedicates to Juan Gris (Madrid, 1887 - Boulogne-sur-Seine, France, 1927) bears witness to the diverse approaches in his output. It highlights those aspects that have remained in the background, for instance his colourist painting, his early years within Cubism and his drawings, considered by the artist himself to be equal to his paintings. This exhibit is in addition to two previous ones dedicated to the artist by the Museo; one, in 2001 Juan Gris 1887-1927 and the other in 2003, Juan Gris dibujante de prensa (Juan Gris the Illustrator).
