Albert Gleizes * (Paris, 1881 – 1953). Gleizes was a French Cubist painter who grew up in Courbevoie (suburb of Paris). He was trained as a technical draftsman and from 1889 worked as a pattern designer in his father's factory in the Parisian district of Sentier. He was a cousin of the French painter Léon Comerre. From 1902 to 1905 he served in the military in Abbeville and from that period he began to paint. Impressed by the work of Henri Le Fauconnier, he became acquainted with the painters Fernand Léger, Jean Metzinger and Robert Delaunay in his studio in Paris.
In 1911 he came into contact with Pablo Picasso and was immediately attracted to Cubism. In the same year, the cubists jointly exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris, causing a scandal. Gleizes and Metzinger became the theorists of Cubism and together they published Du Cubisme in 1912. They also exhibited together again at the Salon of the Section d'or in 1912. In 1914, Gleizes was mobilized and assigned with other artists to a section that had the task of entertaining the troops culturally. In 1915 he married the artist Juliette Roche, the daughter of a French minister. He was released from military service and traveled with his wife to New York. From New York he visited Barcelona, where he met Francis Picabia and had his first solo exhibition at the Dalmau gallery. In 1919, the Gleizes returned to Paris, where the Cubist movement had changed radically. In 1926, again together with Metzinger, he published his paper Tradition et Cubisme.
In 1926 Gleizes left Paris, first to the Ardèche and later the Rhone region, where he bought a house in Sablons. In 1931 he joined the international artists' group Abstraction-Création. From 1934 he experimented with religious murals in an ecclesiastical environment. In 1941 he converted to Catholicism. His important work, and often seen as his artistic testament, includes the illustration of Les Pensées by Blaise Pascal with 57 etchings from 1949/1950. Gleizes lived from 1939 until his death in Méjades near Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. He died in 1953 in Avignon.
