This definitive retrospective of the career of Georges Braque (1882–1963) presents more than 75 significant works of art. The selections range from the artist’s early, bold Fauvist paintings, to the radical Cubist compositions that shaped the course of Modern art, to the lyrical still lifes and landscape abstractions of his later years.
One of the most influential painters of the 20th century, Braque invented Cubism with his friend and collaborator, Pablo Picasso. This exhibition explores Braque’s unique achievement and reveals his genius to new audiences. It is the first comprehensive museum survey of Braque’s work seen in the United States in 25 years.
