Juan Gris (1887 - 1927)

This book belongs to the main period of Juan Gris, his maturity life. It shows the artist moving from the Symbolist to the Cubist period.
In 1910, Gris living already in Pairs, Max Jacob made him known to Pierre Reverdy and it was in January 1916 when Leonce Rosenberg, the artist’s merchant at this time, brought them together to realize the project “Au soleil du plafond”.
Eleven stone lithographs were created and printed in Paris on the Mourlot handpress, completing in a wonderful way the calligraphy of Reverdy’s twenty poems. Due to different setbacks, the book was finally published only in 1955, twenty-eight years after Juan Gris’ death.
