Beyond the Canvas: Georges Braque

1703Beyond-Mar

Award-winning professor Jacqueline Hahn will continue this fascinating art lecture series on legendary artists’ lives and artistic movements.

Georges Braque 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.
