Throughout 1916, Gleizes makes an important series of ink drawings and gouache dedicated to the Spanish dancer. This gouache, featuring the combination of color planes is undoubtedly one of the most finishes. Throughout the series the artist flourishes his vision of cubism, geometric objects deconstruct prospects, but without losing the reference to the real world. Against most of his fellow art, which, right now, betting on the Dada adventure, Gleizes remains faithful to Cubism. Not surprisingly, he was, along with Jean Metzinger, one of the first theorists.
