Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a French painter, printmaker and sculptor. He played a pivotal role in the development of Fauvism and Cubism, two seminal movements in the emergence of Modernism. Braque and Pablo Picasso worked closely between 1908 and 1912, producing Cubist works that explored the concept of simultaneous perspective.
The print in our collection is from 1952. Its greater array of colors and undulating, painterly forms are marks of the artist's later approach to the medium.
