Braque

Georges Braque


Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a French painter.  He, together with Picasso, created what became known as Cubism.

He started out as a house painter like his father!  Then when he took up painting he was first an Impressionist, then a Fauvist before being inspired by Picasso.

He was the first living artist ever to have work exhibited in the Louvre.

His works are both weird and wonderful.
