Juan Gris, the cubist painter whose career ended with early death in 1927, has been considered the most rational of the cubists. This volume, coinciding with a recent European exhibition of Gris's work, reexamines earlier scholarship to propose a view of him as a more complex and varied artistic personality. Green's substantial essays are written at a level suitable for readers already familiar with the historical period and relevant critical theory. There are also essays by Karin von Maur on Gris's relation to music and theater and by Christian Derouet on Gris's letters. A nice selection of color and black-and-white reproductions completes the volume. Recommended for research collections or other large collections with an interest in the field.- Kathryn W.
