Georges Braque

Georges Braque

Braque’s paintings of 1908–1913 began to reflect his new interest in geometry and simultaneous perspective. He conducted an intense study of the effects of light and perspective and the technical means that painters use to represent these effects, appearing to question the most standard of artistic conventions. In his village scenes, for example, Braque frequently reduced an architectural structure to a geometric form approximating a cube, yet rendered its shading so that it looked both flat and three-dimensional by fragmenting the image. In this way, Braque called attention to the very nature of visual illusion and artistic representation.

Braque as a cubist painter doesn’t really inspire me, as I have never been able to see the point in surrealist or cubist work. It doesn’t really show skill, as you are painting something how it doesn’t look not how it does look.
