1963 Georges Braque Cut Diamond Gold Tereus Brooch



Beautifull 18K Gold Brooch by Georges Braque (1882-1963), inventor of cubism. Signed "Bijoux de Braque" and numbered 1/8. The gouache from "Bijoux de Braque" called "Tereus" is reproduced on photo 5. The piece is called "Tereus", after the son of Ares. Very Good Overall Condition. Small coloration of gold (in the heart of the bird) which gives a beautiful patina to the piece. This brooch is very significative of the "Bijoux de Braque" style, representing a very important period in Georges Braque painting, the one of "Ateliers" (Workshops), where birds are apearing. This bird was drawn many times by Georges Braque. You may see an exemple in photo 4. "Bijoux de Braque" is a project of the famous french painter Braque, who designed jewelry in the last three years of his life, from 1960 to 1963. All items of this collection are made after Braque major career works he has chosen to be transposed in jewels and precious sculptures with the help of a Stonecutter, Heger de Loewenfeld. The project ended up as an exhibition at the "palais du Louvre" in Paris from march to may 1963 (Photo 7) There are approximatively 100 gouaches, listed in the book "Les Metamorphoses de Braque" by Heger de Loewenfeld and Raphael de Cuttoli. All subjects are renamed after Greek Mythology characters.
