Juan Gris was an amazing Spanish surrealist painter, Gris is dead now but he’s celebrated via a Google Doodle at Google.com. Now, I can’t really say that I’m a huge Gris fan, or even that I knew who Gris was before today, but I CAN say that this will be an interesting experiment in terms of how Google ranks this blog post for the term “Juan Gris”, a fairly obscure reference in the blog literature. At least until today, when a LOT of blogs will be talking Juan Gris, working the angle of discussing Google doodles.
Violin and Checkerboard, 1913
