Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Baltimore Museum of Art, this is the first U.S. exhibition in over 35 years dedicated to the Spanish artist Juan Gris. "Cubism in Color: The Still Lifes of Juan Gris" highlights the artist’s pioneering and revolutionary contributions to the Cubist movement by focusing on his fascination with subjects drawn from everyday life.

Through more than 40 paintings and collages that span all major periods of the artist’s evolving practice, the exhibition reveals the transformation of Gris’ innovative style and principal motifs from 1912 until 1926, one year before his tragically early death at age 40. His exquisite compositions explored the boundary between abstraction and representation, tension and stasis, color and form.

As a thorough examination of Gris’s still lifes, "Cubism in Color" provides an opportunity to reconsider the legacy of this important yet under-appreciated modernist master.
