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).

This is a project of the association “Des Fleurs de la Mémoire” (Flowers of Memory). This association aims to honor the Americans who served during World War II, fought, died for freedom and now rest in the American military cemeteries in Normandy, especially in the cemetery of Colleville -sur-mer and St James.
8 years ago, a French couple (Frank TOWERS & Claude LAVIEILLE) founded an organization that adopts graves of American servicemen who died during the Normandy invasion of World War II. The volunteer group encourages French families to lay flowers on the graves when the Americans own families can’t do it.
High on a bluff above Omaha Beach, the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer is a place of stunning beauty and tranquillity. Rising from thick, manicured grass, rows of white crosses and Stars of David face westward, toward America.
It’s hard to imagine that 64 years ago, war raged here. But there are the 10,000 graves to prove it.
As of April 18, 2010, of the 15,852 American graves located in the American Memorial Cemeteries at Colleville-sur-Mer and Saint James 13,787 have been adopted by Les Fleurs de la Memoire family members who have pledged to place flowers on their adopted American’s grave at least once a year in perpetuity.
