Biography of Francisco Bores:
Madrid 1898 - Paris 1972
Francisco Bores, after abandoning studies in Civil Engineering and Law, dedicated himself exclusively to painting from 1916.

Around 1923, he became involved with the ultraist movement in Madrid, attended gatherings at the Pombo and Gijón cafes, and collaborated on woodcuts for various magazines such as Alfar, Horizonte, and Revista de Occidente. In 1925, Bores participated in the Exhibition of Iberian Artists and later that year moved to Paris, where he established his residence. There, he became part of a group of Spanish artists settled in the city, including Hernando Viñes and Pancho Cossío, which gave rise to the group known as the School of Paris.

During his time in the French capital, Bores absorbed the influence of various avant-garde movements, such as Picasso’s cubism, Gris, Cézanne’s post-impressionism, and the fauvism of Derain and Matisse. Thus, his artistic production evolved from an initial stage, from 1925 to 1928, influenced by cubism (Still Life on the Wall, 1927), surrealism (The Dance of Ties, 1927), and abstraction (Composition, 1927). From 1929 to 1933, he returned to figuration, but reduced to the essential, stripped of any anecdotal or descriptive content. This is the period of fruit painting. From 1934 onwards, he evolved towards a return to interiors and spatial syntheses, a period in which he cultivated a very lyrical painting centered on interior scenes and still lifes, with the influence of fauvism in the use of color, as seen in works like Woman in Her Room (1937).

Undoubtedly, Francisco Bores is one of the most important representatives of the so-called School of Paris, and his work is represented in the most relevant museums in Europe.
