Biography

Georges Braque was a 20th century French painter who invented Cubism with Pablo Picasso.

Along with Cubism, Braque used the styles of Impressionism, Fauvism and collage, and even staged designs for the Ballet Russes. Through his career, his style changed to portray somber subjects during wartime and lighter, freer themes in between.

He never strayed far from Cubism, as there were always aspects of it in his works.
