About the artist
Initially a member of the Fauves, Braque evolved his Cubist style after meeting Picasso. Their shared palette, style, and subjects were evident, yet Braque's approach was void of iconological commentary, focusing solely on pictorial space and composition. He yearned for balance and harmony, particularly through "papier collés", a pasted paper collage technique invented by both artists in 1912. Braque uniquely incorporated cut-up advertisements into his canvases, anticipating modern art movements like Pop Art. Incorporating techniques such as stenciling letters, blending pigments with sand, and replicating wood grain and marble, Braque introduced remarkable depth into his paintings. His abstract still lifes verge on patterns, embodying the essence rather than a direct representation of the viewed objects.
