Georges Braque

Georges Braque

(1882 - 1963)
Born: Argeneuil-sur-Siene, France
Style: Cubism
Famous Works:
  • Clarinet and Bottle of Rum on a Mantelpiece (1911)
  • Man with a Guitar (1914)
  • Newspaper, Bottle, Packet of Tobacco (1914)
Georges Braque began as a painter-decorator in the tradition of both his father and grandfather. It was in this forum that Braque developed his eye for craftsmanship as well as the technical prowess which would distinguish him from his peers later in his life. At the age of eighteen Braque moved to Paris where he studied briefly at the École des Beaux-Arts. Braque befriended members of the Fauvist movement, including Raoul Dufy, and painted in the brilliantly colored manner typical of the Fauves. In 1907 Braque began working in the style which came to be known as Cubism. This change occurred following his exposure to Paul Cézanne and Pablo Picasso. Braque was highly influenced by Picasso's work and soon began exploring a geometric fragmenting of form and multi-perspectival view. The two worked closely together from 1910-1912, developing and creating the Cubist movement. Often their work was very similar, visualizing images three-dimensionally and incorporating geometrical shapes, lines and forms into their paintings. However, Braque displayed his technical roots, immersing himself in the problems presented in this new vision. After a short service in the First World War, Braque returned to Paris, where his work diverged from Picasso's. Until his death in 1963, Braque continued to produce Cubist still life and figure paintings, incorporating the vivid colors of the Fauves and continually experimenting with textured media and surfaces.

The document tape repaired my Bible beautifully! The corner of a razor blade worked great to "scratch" the corner of the tape to get it started. Thanks a million!

I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory. If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.
