Francisco Borés (Lopez) was a prominent 20th century Spanish artist who studied at the Cecilia Pia Academy. In 1925, he moved to Paris at a time when a second wave of Spanish artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Ginés Parra, Pedro Flores, and Antoni Clavé, were also relocated to Paris. Influenced by his friend Juan Grís and Cubism, he became associated with Surrealist painters. During his lifetime, he exhibited his work at numerous institutions including the Salon des Tuileries, the first Salon des Vrais Indépendants, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Galerie Georges Petit (Paris), the Galerie Vavin-Raspail (Paris), the Zwemmer Gallery (London), and the Palais des Beaux-Arts (Brussels), among many others.
