1898 - 1972
Francisco Bores (Madrid, 5 May 1898 – Paris, 10 May 1972) was a Spanish painter and a member of the so-called School of Paris. After studying for several years in the Cecilio Pla Academy, he left for Paris in the mid 20s where he met Picasso and Juan Gris. In the French capital he worked for some of the most important galleries like the Galerie Georges Petit, the Galerie Bernheim or the Galerie Vavin Raspail. He was strongly influenced by Cubism in the 1920s. Later, his landscapes and interiors were conceived using a more schematized style.
