FRENCH PAINTER AND CO-FOUNDER OF ‘CUBISM’ ,GEORGES BRAQUE,WAS BORN THIS DAY IN 1882 !

GEORGE BRAQUE, One of the exponents of ‘CUBISM’ in Art,especially, in Painting plus Sculpture, Was born this day, May 13, 1882, in Argentuile in France!

Living with his father who was a home decorater in Le Havre,Braque studied during evenings at a local art school for two years.

Georges Braque moved to Paris in 1899 to work as an apprentice under an expert decorater in order to get a certificate.

He was more interested in paintings and during his stay in Paris,he had had many inspirations for creativity after being present at many exhibitions and visiting popular art galleries.

It was the posthumous art exhibition of Cezanne’s works in 1908 in Paris that had proved a turning point for Braque And he started to concentrate on painting solely under the impressionistic style.

Georges Braque learned the experimental tendencies of Cezanne and had started to explore the dynamics of light n shade,colors,space. .et.al !

Braque met Picasso in 1909 and both were surprised to learn that they were experimenting same thing and that was presenting images in fragments with the help of Geometrical Shapes!
Thus came a new style,rather a movement,popularly known as ‘CUBISM’ as the images when explained or analysed they appeared like a group of cubes or cubicles!

Braque and Picasso remained closely associated for a couple of years .When the first world war broke out,Braque was enlisted in French Forces and just after a year he got himself blind post an accident and was thus relieved off his duties.

Braque also painted in Fauvist Styles.

His paintings were showcased at The Famous Luvre Museum in France In 1961 –two years before his death. Thus Georges Braque Became The First Artist Whose Works Got Exhibited At Luvre During His Lifetime!

He died on August 31,1963 in Paris .

Multiple Perspective,Brilliance Of Colors,Space Between Objects and Movements in Space . . . .are some of Braque’s signature traits !
