About

'George Braque' book by Ing. C. Olivetti e C., S.p.A. - Ivrea. Published in 1958. In good original condition, with consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina with some scratches. French painter, collagist and sculptor Georges Braque (French, 1882-1963) is, along with Pablo Picasso, renowned as the co-founder of Cubism, which revolutionized 20th century painting. In his work, objects are fragmented and reconstructed into geometric forms, fracturing the picture plane in order to explore a variety of viewpoints. 'The hard-and-fast rules of perspective... were a ghastly mistake which…has taken four centuries to redress,' he said in 1957. Merging aspects of the sculptural with the pictorial, Braque was also an innovator in the use of collage, inventing a technique known as papier collé, which he first explored in one early work Fruit Dish and Glass (1912) by attaching pieces of wallpaper to a charcoal drawing. This approach deeply influenced not only his contemporaries but generations of artists from Modernism to the present.
