Google dedicated a new doodle with cubist imagery to celebrate the 125th birth anniversary of Spanish painter and sculptor, Juan Gris on Friday.

Juan Gris was born as José Victoriano Carmelo Carlos González-Pérez in Madrid on 23 March, 1887 and became a pioneer in cubism - an innovative artistic field.

The new doodle on his birth anniversary depicted musical instruments featured in angular style.

Though he studied mechanical drawing at the Escuela de Artes y Manufacturas in Madrid from 1902 to 1904, most part of his artistic life and work were in France.

By 1912, he developed a personal cubist style and featured his paintings with the extensive use of bright colours like his friend and contemporary painter, Henri Matisse.

Major exhibitions of Gris took place at the Galerie Simon in Paris and the Galerie Flechtheim in Berlin in 1923, and at the Galerie Flechtheim in Düsseldorf in 1925. He died in Paris in the spring of 1927 at the age of forty suffering from kidney failure.

Google's doodles are the visual and often spontaneous changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries and the lives of famous artists, pioneers and scientists.

Google began its doodles in 2000 when founders Larry and Sergey asked Dennis Hwang, an intern then, to produce a doodle for Bastille Day. Now a chief doodler, Hwang has made it a regular feature to celebrate familiar holidays, famous events and anniversaries from the Birthday of John James Audubon to the Ice Cream Sundae.

Hwang's team has so far created over 1,000 doodles for Google's homepages around the world.
