Artist
    (March 23, 1887-May 11, 1927)
    Born in Madrid, Spain
    Birth name was Jose Victoriano Gonzalez-Perez
    Cubist painter and sculptor
    Paintings include 'Portrait of Picasso (1912), 'Guitar and Pipe' (1913), 'Fantomas' (1915), 'Still Life with Fruit Dish and Mandolin' (1919), 'Harlequin with Guitar' (1919) and 'The Painter's Window' (1925)
    Called the Third Musketeer of Cubism (with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque)
    He left Spain for Paris to avoid military service.
    He became such a Francophile he insisted that friends call him 'Jean' instead of 'Juan.'
    Sculptor Jacques Lipchitz said, 'He had a terrible inferiority complex.'
    Unlike Picasso and Braque, whose Cubist works were monochromatic, his paintings were brightly colored.
    He delivered an influential lecture, 'On the Possibilities of Painting,' at the Sorbonne (1924).
    He designed sets for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes.
