George Braque

It’s the birthday (May 13) of Georges Braque (1882). He and Picasso developed Cubism when both lived in Montmartre in Paris, beginning around 1908. With the application of geometry, Braque created paintings with multiple perspectives. He fragmented his subjects so that they looked both flat and three-dimensional at the same time. Shown here is Violin and Candlestick, painted in 1910.
