  Juan Gris
Juan Gris (1887-1927) was born in Madrid and studied mathematics and engineering before training as a painter.
Gris was at first welcomed and tutored in Cubism by Picasso, but subsequently treated harshly by Picasso as Gris advanced Cubism from the analytic to the synthetic and mastered the art form in his short lifetime.
Gris' works were neither geometrical nor monumental space, but arranged such that the forms of the objects appear to be inscribed without effort on the flat surface as pure graphic emblems.

 Juan Gris Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
Gris produced his first cubist paintings in 1911-1912; they were in the analytical cubist vein of Braque and Picasso but characterized by a metalliclike sheen, as in the Guitar and Flowers (1912) and the Portrait of Picasso (1912), in which Picasso's Napoleonic attitude is cleverly caught.
Gris returned to Paris in 1915, and he suffered bleak poverty during World War I. In late 1916 his paintings became more stately and architectonic, and forms became larger and flatter as multiple viewpoints were to an extent abandoned, as in the Violin (1916).
Gris referred to these paintings as "flat, colored architecture." In 1917 he executed his only sculpture, a painted plaster Harlequin, which was close to what Jacques Lipchitz was doing at the time.

Gris witnessed the birth of Cubism with much enthusiasm and was immediately considered as one of the main exponents of that movement.
Gris was probably one of the rare artists who stuck to the ideals of Cubism while Picasso and Braque progressively swerved toward abstraction.
Gris was also somewhat guilty of being a wee bit too modest and did not have the temperament of Picasso to impose himself on the art scene while certain critics felt he had imitated Braque from 1921 whereas he was no longer in accordance with the latter at that time.

Gris, himself, repeatedly maintained this was the case: "I start with an abstraction in order to arrive at true fact," he avowed.
