Synopsis: Georges Braque (1882-1963) was one of the most revered and influential artists of his generation. He became famous for his role as co-inventor, with Picasso, of Cubism before the First World War, whilst the 'classical' quality of his later works, with their highly structured compositions and sublimated emotion, led him to be seen as a quintessentially French artist.
Braque made prints throughout his long career. He produced a small number of Cubist etchings and drypoints between 1908 and 1912. In the interwar years he made an important suite of etchings for a luxury edition of an ancient Greek text. It was only after the Second World War, however, that Braque began printmaking in earnest. Paris was then the international centre of fine art printing, and he was able to work with some of the best printers in the world. At the workshop of Fernand Mourlot, he made a series of Greek-inspired lithographs, along with such well-known still lifes as 'Teapot and Lemons' and 'Leaves, Colour, Light'. With the intaglio printer Aldo Crommelynck, he experimented with sugar-lift aquatint, producing images of great technical refinement.
One of the first School of Paris artists to take up colour lithography after the war, Braque was recognised in his lifetime as not only a great painter but also as a major printmaker. This book reproduces a wide selection of Braque's prints drawn from the artist's own collection, and includes a number of rare, uneditioned works. It also features an essay on Braque's life and achievement as a printmaker by Jennifer Mundy, Assistant Keeper in the Modern Collection of the Tate Gallery.
