Georges Braque - France

Art Brokerage: Georges Braque French Artist: B. 1882-1963. Georges Braque was one of the inventors of Cubism, as well as the collage, two artistic techniques that would open a crucial door into twentieth century art. Along with Picasso, Braque crossed traditional boundaries and worked toward something beyond abstraction; he strove to link abstraction to visual reality, and succeeded in doing so by pioneering the innovative techniques that changed modern art.
