history Marius de Zayas (1880-1961) was a Mexican draughtsman, caricaturist and art critic. Together with Marcel Duchamp and Stieglitz, he was a member of group "291" and one of the first persons to introduce Picasso to America.

He wanted to give the public the opportunity to buy evolving modern art at reasonable prices thereby arousing greater interest in contemporary arts.

As founder of the Modern Gallery, he was mainly interested in exhibiting "negro" art, Mexican idols, photography and artists such as Derain, Picabia, Dove, Marin and Picasso.
