Georges Braque at the Grand Palais


One of the century’s key painters.

From September, the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais are hosting a retrospective dedicated to the artist Georges Braque who, along with Pablo Picasso, was one of the founders of the Cubist movement.Born in Argenteuil in 1882, Georges Braque spent his youth in Le Havre before arriving in Paris in the early twentieth century. In the capital, he met Marie Laurencin and Francis Picabia.



Painting colourful paintings during his stay at L’Estaque, Braque then moved on to a geometric approach to forms after seeing the works of Paul Cézanne at the 1907 Salon d’Automne. His meeting with Pablo Picasso would prove a revelation, with his painting becoming, according to the critic Louis Vauxcelles, piles of cubes. Cubism was born.After the landscapes, Braque became concerned with still lifes that he deconstructed. Not wanting to go the way of abstraction, he introduced letters and numbers stencilled into his paintings. Having survived wars and various illnesses, he died in Paris in 1963.His most famous works are undoubtedly Le Viaduc de l’Estaque (1908) or La Route près de l’Estaque (1908).
