Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a 20th century French painter - and occasional lithographer, engraver and sculptor - who invented Cubism with Pablo Picasso. Despite working closely together, their approaches were quite different with Georges Braque proving more considered and Picasso more spontaneous. Concerned with representing a subject in his own way - conveying more than just the image before him - most of his art prints were still lifes.
He constantly struggled with the use of colour in regard to form. Through his career, his style changed to portray somber subjects during wartime and lighter, freer themes in between. He was a quiet man but his reputation was such that he received many accolades during his lifetime and was accorded the greatest honour of all in a state funeral when he died in 1963.
