Georges Braque (1882- 1963) Considered one of the most important artists of the 20th Century, Braque's prints, lithographs, etchings, aquatints and paintings are dynamic. Never the same style or interpretation, his still lifes, birds and flowers speak to change and sentiment. Georges Braque‰Ûªs painting style is best characterized by its ability to constantly evolve.
Braque began creating prints as early as 1907. The first series from this period were the ten Cubist prints, modeled after his paintings. These prints are increasingly rare, few collectors have been able to reconstruct the series in its entirety. In these earlier stages of his printmaking, Braque mainly practiced etching. However, he ventured into lithography in 1921, creating his first lithograph Nature morte III (Verre et Fruits) , 1921. He became quite adept with the medium and clearly favored creating images of still life.
