Description:
Gris's works from late 1916 through 1917 exhibit a greater simplification of geometric structure with oblique overlapping planar constructions, tending away from equilibrium. In 1919 and particularly 1920, artists and critics began to write conspicuously about this "synthetic" approach, and to assert its importance in the overall scheme of advanced Cubism. Gris was ill from 1925, and died in 1927. (Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Main_Page)
