Georges Braque (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 1906, 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.
Georges Braque was a 20th century French painter who invented Cubism with Pablo Picasso. Along
with Cubism, Braque used the styles of Impressionism, Fauvism and collage, and even staged designs
for the Ballet Russes. Through his career, his style changed to portray somber subjects during wartime
and lighter, freer themes in between. He never strayed far from Cubism, as there were always aspects
of it in his works. Braque died on August 31, 1963, in Paris.
