Georges Braque

Georges Braque

French painter, graphic artist, designer, sculptor and decorator.
What greatly attracted me - and it was the main line of advance of Cubism - was how to give material expression to this new space of which I had an inkling. So I began to paint chiefly still lifes, because in nature there is a tactile, I would almost say a manual space... that was the earliest Cubist painting - the quest for space.More Georges Braque quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Thanks to the oval I have discovered the meaning of the horizontal and the vertical.More Georges Braque quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I couldn't portray a women in all her natural loveliness.. I haven't the skill. No one has. I must, therefore, create a new sort of beauty, the beauty that appears to me in terms of volume of line, of mass, of weight, and through that beauty interpret my subjective impression. Nature is mere a pretext for decorative composition, plus sentiment. It suggests emotion, and I translate that emotion into art. I want to express the absolute, not merely the factitious woman.More Georges Braque quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I considered that the painter's personality should be kept out of things, and therefore pictures should be anonymous. It was I who decided that pictures should not be signed, and for a time Picasso did the same.More Georges Braque quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When objects shattered into fragments appeared in my painting about 1909, this for me was a way of getting closest to the object... Fragmentation helped me to establish space and movement in space.More Georges Braque quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
