Jean Metzinger (French, 1883 - 1956)
French artist and writer Jean Metzinger was born in Nantes, where he studied, before moving to Paris in 1903. Metzinger painted in a fauvist style early in his career, before adopting the geometric patterning and angular planes of Cubism around 1910 to 1912. Metzinger was one of the first artists to experiment with Cubism, though his style was always rooted in naturalism. He is perhaps still best known for the influential book on Cubism which he co-wrote with Albert Gleizes in 1912, and which was the first theoretical study of the movement.
