Georges Braque was a French painter who started studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1900. Initially he painted in the manner of Fauves, with pure pigments and bright colours, but was not in harmony with the subjective and impulsive aspects of Fauvism. Braque began painting in a geometrically analytical manner and when introduced to Picasso in 1907, co-invented Cubism which would later pave the way for Abstract art. After World War I, in which Braque was seriously wounded, his style became less angular, incorporating graceful curves. He concentrated on still life which lead to his Studio series of the 1950’s. As well as painting, Braque also designed stage sets, costumes and illustrated books. He enjoyed immense prestige, becoming Commander of the Legion of Honor in 1951. In 1961 he was the first living artist to have their work exhibited in the Louvre.
What Our Customers Say:
My prints are fantastic. Even the texture is impressive making it more like the genuine article!
I bought 3 prints. I found one hard to come by previously and I was relieved when I got onto this site and discovered I could get it- as well as others representative of the genre. I was surprised with the range and impressed with the price so I bought more than what I was intending to but an investment in great prints nevertheless. I was even surprised by the quality of the paper! Looking forward to Facebooking the end result when framed.
+ Easy, economic one stop shopping for a variety of print styles. Impressive turn around time - even at Christmas.
