Juan Legua  1911

by Juan Gris

The rosy features of the sitter's face have a humorous expression, distinguishing Juan Gris's work from Picasso's Cubist portraits of the same year. Until 1910 Gris had worked as an illustrator, supplying magazines with satirical drawings. He took the name "Juan Gris" shortly before moving from his native Madrid to Paris in 1906.
