Braque, Oiseaux, Verve: Revue Artistique et Littéraire (after)

1955

About the Item

Lithograph on vélin du Marais paper. Inscription: Unsigned and unnumbered, as issued. Good condition. Notes: From the volume, The Intimate Sketchbooks of G. Braque, Verve: Revue Artistique et Littéraire, Vol. VIII, N° 31-32, 1955. Published by Éditions de la revue Verve, Paris in collaboration with Harcourt Brace and Company, New York; and printed by Mourlot Frères, Paris, September 20, 1955. Excerpted from the volume on the background of this and the other works set forth therein, The illustrations in this volume are reproduced from the sketch-books—carnets de travail—which Georges Braque has been keeping up for thirty years and more, and which constitute a daily record of fragments of the visible world that have caught his attention and ideas for paintings that have occurred to him. In fact the only difference between these sketch-books and the diaries kept by so many writers is that here the entries are not written but take the form of gouache or watercolor sketches. Hitherto Braque has always refused to make public these albums, which he takes with him wherever he goes and which comprise the bulk of his work as a draftsman. Now at long last he has authorized the reproduction of a number of pages of these albums, selected by himself with our co-operation. GEORGES BRAQUE (1882-1963) was a major 20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor. His most notable contributions were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1905, and the role he played in the development of Cubism. Braque's work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso. Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso.
