Juan Gris (1887-1927) was a Spanish painter and sculptor who is most commonly associated with the Cubist movement of the early 20th century. In Cubism, art pieces are broken up into pieces and then reassembled in an abstracted form to allow them to be viewed from multiple viewports. Juan was close friends with another Cubist painter, Pablo Picasso, but instead focused on synthetic cubism where objects were no longer recognizable in their original form, but took on new forms. Juan experimented with different materials as well adapting a collage technique in numerous works. Our collection of patterns includes a broad sampling of his cubism style including Guitar and Pipe, Portrait of Picasso, Harlequin with Guitar, The Packet of Cigars, Violin and Checkerboard, the Bull Fighter, Landscape with Houses at Ceret, and A Man in a Café.
