Jean Metzinger (zhäN mĕtsăNzhār´), 1883–1956, French painter and writer. With Gleizes he wrote Du cubisme (1912, tr. 1913), which presented the philosophical basis of the cubist aesthetic. In his paintings he employed cubist faceting and a stylized, richly detailed manner that was never wholly abstract. The Dancer (Albright-Knox Art Gall., Buffalo, N.Y.) is characteristic.
