Jose Victoriano Gonzalez-Perez better known as Juan Gris (March 23, 1887 – May 11, 1927) 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.

 

Born in Madrid, Gris studied mechanical drawing at the Escuela de Artes y Manufacturas in Madrid from 1902 to 1904, during which time he contributed drawings to local periodicals. From 1904 to 1905 he studied painting with the academic artist José Maria Carbonero.
