Hardcover. 240 pages. Dimensions: 12.3in. x 10.4in. x 1.1in.This examination of Braques career features exquisite reproductions and incisive historical and aesthetic investigations of his work leading up to and during World War II. This book offers the first detailed examination of Braques experiments with still lifes and interiors during a significant, though overlooked, time in his career. One of the leading founders of Cubism, Braque employed the genre of the still life to conduct a lifelong investigation into the nature of perception through the tactile and transitory world of everyday objects.

Reproduced in vivid color, Braques paintings are accompanied by scholarly essays that explore the rise of Braques popularity in the US, including his first major retrospective in America, and the reception of his work of the early 1930s and 1940s by German and French critics, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the materials and process employed by the artist as illuminated by an intensive conservation study of select important works.

Book Description Als einer der Begründer des Kubismus setzte sich Georges Braque intensiv mit dem Stillleben auseinander. In seinen Experimenten mit dem Genre und mit dem des Interieurs erforscht er die Natur der Wahrnehmung durch die fühlbare und vergängliche Welt der Alltagsgegenstände. Diese Publikation behandelt einen wichtigen, bislang vernachlässigten Zeitraum - die Übergangszeit vom frühen kubistischen Werk zu den späten großen Serien - und betrachtet Braques Gemälde im kulturellen und politischen Kontext Europas. Die Essays behandeln die Zeit seiner großen Erfolge in den USA ebenso wie die Rezeption seines Werkes durch die deutsche und die französische Kunstkritik (Text engl.). 25,5 x 30,5 cm, 240 Seiten, 120 Farbabb., Leinen.
