French painter and sculptor Georges Braque (1882-1963) is a major 20th century artist, well known as the inventor of cubism. A forerunner of abstraction, he is among the avant-garde artists of the early 20th century. A complete retrospective of his works is currently on exhibit in Paris.
A major exhibit
The Grand Palais is presenting a most ambitious exhibit encompassing all the different periods of Braque’s work. The public will be able to discover his cubic works and his collaborative work with Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), his affinity to music and complicity with composer and pianist Erik Satie (1866-1925), as well as his years of Fauvism. Definitely worth a visit!
