Jean Metzinger | Seated Woman, 1919






Jean Metzinger (1883-1956) was a major 20th-century French painter, theorist, writer, critic and poet, who along with Albert Gleizes wrote a theoretical work on Cubism.

His earliest works, from 1900-1904, were influenced by the Neo-impressionism of Georges Seurat and Henri-Edmond Cross.
Between 1904-1907 Metzinger worked in the Divisionist and Fauvist styles with a strong Cézannian component, leading to some of the first proto-Cubist works
