About the Artist - Georges Braque

Georges Braque (1882–1963) was a pioneering French painter and sculptor, renowned as a co-founder of Cubism alongside Picasso. Born in Argenteuil, France, Braque initially studied painting and apprenticed in Paris. His early works were influenced by Fauvism and Impressionism.

 

Braque's collaboration with Picasso in the early 20th century led to the development of Cubism, an avant-garde art movement that revolutionized traditional perspectives by depicting objects from multiple viewpoints simultaneously. The two artists worked closely, creating a style known as Analytical Cubism, marked by fragmented forms and a monochromatic palette.

 

During World War I, Braque served in the French army, and the war experience influenced a shift in his artistic style towards more tranquil and colorful compositions. In the 1920s, he explored different mediums, including sculpture and collage.

 

An interesting aspect of Braque's life is his passion for music, particularly playing the accordion. This hobby found its way into his art, with musical themes and instruments often appearing in his paintings. Braque's innovative contributions to modern art and his ability to continuously evolve his style make him a significant figure in 20th-century art history.
