The spanish artist Juan Gris was born 125 years ago. Google honors Gris with a nice artistic doodle. It seems to be a cubistic artwork like Juan Gris paintings. Born as José Victoriano Carmelo Carlos González-Pérez in Madrid the 19 year old Juan leave Spain and went to Paris. In the beginning of the 20 century the french capital was the centre of the art-world. First he worked as illustrator. After a short while he became friend with other painters, eg. Pablo Picasso, Georg Braques or Amadeo Modigliani.

Here the Gris-Doodle:

„In 1906 he moved to Paris and became friends with Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Fernand Léger, then in 1915 he was painted by his friend, Amedeo Modigliani. In Paris, Gris followed the lead of another friend and fellow countryman, Pablo Picasso. Although he submitted darkly humorous illustrations to journals such as Le Rire, L’assiette au beurre, Le Charivari, and Le Cri de Paris, Gris began to paint seriously in 1910, and by 1912 he had developed a personal Cubist style. His portrait of Picasso in 1912 is a significant early Cubist painting done by a painter other than Picasso or Braque. Although Gris regarded Picasso as a teacher, Gertrude Stein wrote in The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas that „Juan Gris was the only person whom Picasso wished away“. Source: Wikipedia
