Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Georges Braque

Georges Braque (1882 – 1963) was a 20th century French painter best known for inventing Cubism with Pablo Picasso.

Houses of l’Estaque

Cubism was a highly influential visual arts style of the 20th century that was created principally by the artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in Paris between 1907 and 1914. 

Interior with Pallette

The two artists worked closely together until the outbreak of World War I, upon which Braque joined the French Amy and left Picasso’s side.

Violin Melodie

After his return from the war, in which he was seriously wounded in the battlefield, Braque moved away from the harsh lines and sharp pointed complexity of the cubist style, and instead began to paint pieces with bright colors and eventually return to the human figure.

Still Life with Grapes

Throughout his life, Braque’s work focused on still life and means of viewing objects from various perspectives through color, line, and texture.

Still Life with Bottle of Bass

Along with Cubism, Braque used the styles of Impressionism, Fauvism and collage, and even staged designs for the Ballet Russes.

The Portuguese

He never strayed far from Cubism, though, as there were always aspects of it in his works.
