Daniel Vazquez Diaz (1)


The Canal, 1926

Daniel Vázquez Díaz (January 15, 1882 – March 17, 1969) was a Spanish painter.
Born in Nerva, Spain, Vázquez Díaz settled in Paris in 1918, where he found cubism to be the ideal form of expression. Unlike other artists such as Juan Gris, he was not an intellectual cubist; he used external forms and the morphology of cubism to redo his language, characterized by the use of sober and gray colors, and by the vigor of his planes.
