The book The Art of Georges Braque by Edwin Mullins is about the life and work of Georges Braque, a French painter and sculptor who is considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Braque was a pioneer of the Cubist movement, and his work helped to establish Cubism as a major art movement.
The book discusses Braque’s paintings and sculptures in detail, and it also provides insights into his artistic philosophy. Mullins argues that Braque’s work is characterized by its simplicity, its focus on form and structure, and its use of color and light to create a sense of depth and perspective.
Some of Braque’s most famous paintings include Violin and Candlestick (1910), Still Life with Bread and Fruit (1909), and Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907). His sculptures are less well-known, but they are equally important to his overall body of work.
Mullins’ book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the life and work of Georges Braque. It is also a good introduction to the Cubist movement.
