Georges Braque (Who is Georges Braque ?)

Georges Braque was born in Argenteuil, Val-d’Oise. She grew up in Le Havre and his father and grandfather was a painter and decorator. However, From1897 to  1899,He attended  Le Havre, Ecole des Beaux-Arts where he studied painting at night classes . In Paris, he apprenticed with a decorator and was awarded a certificate in 1902. The following year, he attended the Académie Humbert, also in Paris, and  painted many works there until 1904. Marie Laurencin and Francis Picabia said his first works were impressionistic, but in 1905, after seeing the work exhibited by the fauve, Braque adopted a Fauvist movement style. Fauveism included in a group of painters like  Henri Matisse and André Derain, In this type of movement what was the most intense emotional response were bright colors and loose structures of forms. Braque developed a little more subdued Fauvist movement style in his hometown of Le Havre, and worked  with painters such as Braque, Raoul Dufy and Othon Friesz. Paul died in 1906, Cézanne, and his works gained grounds as a large-scale in Museums.In September 1907 his retrospective was first exhibited in Paris.The same year, Braque came under the a strong influence and his style began a slow evolution. In 1907 with the advent of large retrospective of Cézanne,he was  influenced by the avant-garde style and he paved a direction towards Cubism. 1908-1913 Braque reflected   geometry and simultaneous perspective in his painting with introspection to his new interest. He took and intensive study of the effects in most of the standard contract that appears to question the artistic, light and perspective and the painter represented these effects technically . Braque frequently broke  down flat and three-dimensional images of his village scenes , thus he approached his painting style with cubic forms which rendered the shading, thus an architectural structure is reduced to geometric shapes. He showed this, ‘ in house ‘ ‘Estaque oil painting. In this way Braque manipulated the nature of visual illusion and artistic representation. In 1909, Braque began to work closely with Picasso he   had been developing a similar approach to Picasso’s works. Braque had the multiple perspectives of Cézanne’s idea while he also mostly develoed interest in Pablo Picasso, Gauguin, Cézanne, and was influenced by Iberian sculpture, African tribal masks, and Braque had an significant speeding up transfer in his thoughts and to intensified more on Cubism. Braque and Picasso were the main innovators of the movement. In 1907, Braque and Picasso, in particular, began work on the development of Cubism in 1908. Both artists produced complex patterns, forms also called Analytic Cubism directional monochromatic color and are pictures. Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso painted, along with Céret on French Pyrenees , in 1911, it is almost impossible to distinguish the worksof  each artist. In 1912, they began to experiment with collage and papier mache Colle. Their productive collaboration continued and Braque, left the French army in Paris in the first world war when World War I  broke out  in 1914 They could closely work together. French art critic Louis Vauxcelles first coined the term Cubism or bizarre cubiques ‘ after seeing a picture of Braque, in 1908,.He did not accept this coinage  in the begining, but the term gained wide use fast then,and  it described the paintings as ‘ full of little cubes . Art Historian Ernst Gombrich described Cubism as ‘ an end to the uncertainty and the most radical attempt to force an official reading . It is a human-made construction, a colorful canvas what defined the ‘ Cubist movement. Braque quickly spread throughout Europe and Paris, and his artistic career started in 1917, he moved away from Cubism to hard abstraction. His work inclueded brightly colored and textured surfaces . With the human figure-reappearance his movement  developed a more personal style. While maintaining an emphasis on doing that, during this period he painted many still life topics. Cubist painter Juan Gris during his recovery he became close friends with those painters who followed this style. His outstanding oil paintings are  graphics, and sculptures, all imbued with the quality of a significant number of common opinion, . Braque, Matisse, along with Fernand Mourlot Pablo Picasso were credited to introduce, self-created lithography and book illustration as the Mourlot Studios, in the 1940s and ‘ 50s. In Paris,he died on 31August 1963. In  Saint-Marguerite-sur-Mer, Normandy, France he was buried in a  church cemetery. Braque’s works prevail  in the world’s most important museums.

The pears look strangely, vaguely orange or purplish-blue and the eggs . his exemplary show, which retells an important part of the now historically distant era of French modernism, speaks eloquently to the present. Not, I hasten to add, with reference to the pictorial concerns of cubism itself: That visual culture is now distant. But what remains of living interest is Braque’s ability to radically develop,
