Article

Georges Braque was a major French modernist painter of the twentieth century who created and developed the cubist painting technique. Upon meeting Picasso in 1907, Braque quickly shifted towards a reduced colour palette, an emphasis on geometry, confrontation with the canvas picture plane, and the integration of collage into painting techniques. His legacy as a prolific, imaginative, cubist painter contributed to the evolution of painting during a crucial moment for Modernism.
