Georges Braque at the Grand Palais – Paris

Georges Braque at the Grand Palais – Paris

September 18, 2013 through January 6, 2014 – “Georges Braque at the Grand Palais,” is the first Parisian retrospective in forty years devoted to the revolutionary painter, engraver, sculptor, inventor of the collage, Cubist pioneer and one of the towering figures of twentieth century art. Following the full chronological arc of the artist’s career through hundreds of works, the panoply on view ranges from early Fauvist canvases to the avante-garde Cubist masterpieces which unalterably changed the nature of modern art to his celebrated workshop paintings and canephorae or paintings of women with baskets, to his later much admired landscapes and still lifes to the final dazzling representations he created of birds.

Not only an opportunity to rediscover Braque’s genius, the exhibition also provides a fresh perspective on Braque’s oeuvre by exploring in detail through related exhibits his collaborations with Picasso during the advent of Cubism, the connection between his art, poetry, literature and especially music particularly that of Erik Satie and his associations with photographers Man Ray, Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Presented in association with the National Museum of Modern Art, the display draws from vast holdings of the Pompidou augmented by loans from private collectors and public institutions around the world including in the United States, Germany, Italy, Japan and Switzerland.
