Albert Gleizes (1881–1953) was the co-founder and one of the most important representatives of synthetic cubism. Besides his career as a painter, he was also a theorist of Cubism and one of the first French advocates of non-representational painting. He founded the artist’s colony Moly-Sebata, named after the house that gave a home to it in Sablons, in 1927. In the 1920s and 1930s, he devoted much of his energy to writing and worked on a comprehensive theory of the history of art and the evolution of modern art. In his works, he discussed twentieth-century painting in the light of the changes which have occurred in other disciplines, such as in the field of mathematics and the physical sciences. He gave lectures about his theories throughout Europe. His 1933 book, Art et Science contains the transcripts of the lectures he gave on a tour in Poland and Germany.
