Albert Gleizes was a cubist painter, illustrator, and writer. He was among the outstanding cubists in the Salon des Indépendants of 1911. Gleizes employed a rich palette in contrast to the essentially monochromatic effects of Braque and Picasso, and his work remained more representational than theirs. His painting is represented in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. Gleizes was also well-known as an illustrator and as a writer on art. With Jean Metzinger, he wrote the first exposition of the principles of cubism in Du Cubisme (1912, tr. 1913). Gleizes' evolving cubism saw him exhibit at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris in 1910 then collaborate with Jean Metzinger to produce a theoretical essay about cubism that was published in 1912. In the fall of that year, he and Metzinger joined the Puteaux Group led by Jacques Villon and his brother Marcel Duchamp. In February of 1913, Gleizes and other artists introduced the new style of painting to an American audience at the Armory Show in New York City.
