The Artist

Georges Braque

French artist Georges Braque was born on 13 May 1882 in Argenteuil, Val-d’Oise and grew up in Le Havre. Braque was a major 20th Century collagist, painter, printmaker, sculptor and draughtsman. Braque studied painting and decorating like his father, and grandfather before him, but soon found an interest in more serious painting, studying it in the evenings alongside his work at École des Beaux-Arts in Le Havre.
