This week ART CLASS will be inspired
by George Braque!
Saturday April 2 & Sunday April
Georges Braque (1882 – 1963) was a major
20th-century French painter, collagist, draughtsman, printmaker and
sculptor. His most important contributions to the history of art
were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1906, 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.
