A major exponent of Cubism, Albert Gleizes was driven by his social ideals to produce art that opposed the bourgeois canon. Under the influence of Pablo Picasso and other Cubist-inspired artists, Gleizes’s work became increasingly characterized by dynamic intersections of geometric planes, and alongside Jean Metzinger and Robert Delaunay he participated in the first exhibition of Cubism in 1911. In 1912, he co-authored a book, Du Cubisme, with Metzinger, but in a later publication, La peinture et ses lois (Painting and its laws) (1923), which theorized abstract art, he rejected both representation and geometric forms. Towards the end of his career, Gleizes turned to Romanesque, Gothic, Byzantine, and Arabic art as sources of inspiration, and to producing murals for public spaces.
