Georges Braque

Georges Braque, 1949

French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor Georges Braque was born on this day, May 13, in 1882 (d. 1963).

His most notable contributions 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.
