Georges Braque

Georges Braque was a French artist and cofounder of Cubism. Along with Pablo Picasso he developed the radical style of shifting points-of-view, limited color palettes, and collaged elements. The complexity of this pictorial experience can be seen in the work Bottles and Fishes (1910-1912), in which traditional notions of illusionism dissolve into a medley of volume and space. “The painter thinks in terms of form and color,” he once reflected. “The goal is not to be concerned with the reconstitution of an anecdotal fact, but with constitution of a pictorial fact.”
