About Georges Braque

  • Georges Braque (; French: [b?ak]; 13 May 1882 – 31 August 1963) was a major 20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor.
  • His most important contributions to the history of art were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1905, and the role he played in the development of Cubism.
  • Braque's work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso.
  • Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso.
