those years yielded inventive works that changed the course of art history. But as this new volume makes clear, to think of Braque primarily in relation to Picasso is to underestimate him and to miss much of what makes Braque unmistakably "Braque." By helping us to see and understand how and what Braque painted, the ever-astute critic Karen Wilkin reveals the full magnitude of his achievement. Her perceptive text and discriminating choice of illustrations--including some

Georges Braque : a life by Alex Danchev ( Book )
21 editions published between 1956 and 2005 in 8 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A pioneer of modern art and founder of Cubism, Georges Braque was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Yet, until now, the full story of his life has remained untold." "In this first full-length biography, Alex Danchev draws on a wealth of new sources to reveal a man who ushered in one of the greatest revolutions in art since the Renaissance." "Braque devoted his life to pushing the boundaries of the possible. Art critic Louis Vauxcelles coined the term Cubism while appraising Braque's landmark 1908 painting, Houses at L'Estaque, which Matisse later christened "really the first picture constituting the origin of Cubism." A few years later, in 1912, Braque pioneered the collage as fine art with the groundbreaking Fruit Dish and Glass. An internationally renowned painter, he was also a highly accomplished poet and philosopher - praised by Sartre and Heidegger. Braque also fought bravely in World War I. At the Battle of Somme, he sustained a serious skull fracture and nearly died." "But it was Braque's partnership with Picasso that bore the richest fruit and has become the stuff of legend. Lifelong friends and rivals, the two men assessed each other's work at every step, forging an artistic association that was intimate, intense, and profoundly influential. Together they struck down linear perspective, infusing art with a new freedom and excitement." "In this biography, Danchev explores Braque's creativity, examines his personal and professional relationships - with Beckett, Cezanne, Giacometti, Matisse, and Miro, among others - and enriches our understanding of an extraordinary fertile period in art history. Braque emerges as a bold innovator, a revolutionary genius, and a towering figure of modern art."--BOOK JACKET
Picasso, Braque, Léger, and the Cubist spirit, 1919-1939 by Kenneth Wayne ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents art and design in France during the years between the two World Wars, in an effort to dispel the perception that Cubism was only a pre-World War I phenomenon. After the war, Cubist painting became more varied, colorful, and accessible, and began to affect other media such as furniture, fashion, cinema and architecture. What had begun as a rarefied pictorial style became a popular language. The first essay addresses Picasso's abundant and varied cubist painting. The second essay treats the art of three major Cubists -- Picasso, Braque, and Leger -- in the context of the various cubist idioms that developed. The third essay, also broad in scope, examines the significant relationship between Cubism and the decorative arts in France
