During his artistic career, he created thousands of works, not only paintings but also sculptures, prints, and ceramics, using all kinds of materials.

    Cubist Theory Cubism began as an intellectual revolt against the artistic expression of previous eras.

    1,268 words
    Georges Braque was one of the fathers of Cubism. Along with Picasso he explored and invented a new way of painting that got its name from critics who pointed out small cubes in his earliest cubist works. At the end of 1907, Braque met Picasso at the unveiling of The Ladies of Avignon. This piece and a nude by Braque of late 1907 would become known as the first cubist paintings. Both artists were inspired by Cezanne's use of geometry in representing the subject matter in his painting. These works...
  • Works Of Braque And Picasso
    1,498 words
    In the 19th Century, the visual arts had adhered increasingly closely to a set of fundamental notions of perspective, form and modeling which governed composition, especially of the two dimensional kind. The two-dimensional surface of the canvas was something that had to be overcome; something that the artist could, if he succeeded, completely destroy with his brush and replace with a three-dimensional representation as close to nature as possible. Although Pablo Picasso and George Braque would ...
