Coin Story

Georges Braque (May 13, 1882 – August 31, 1963) was a major 20th century French painter and sculptor who, along with Pablo Picasso, developed the art movement known as Cubism. Beginning in 1909, Braque began to work closely with Pablo Picasso, who had been developing a similar approach to painting. At the time Pablo Picasso was influenced by Gauguin, Cézanne, African tribal masks and Iberian sculpture, while Braque was mostly interested in developing Cézanne's idea's of multiple perspectives. The invention of Cubism was a joint effort between Picasso and Braque, then residents of Montmartre, Paris. After meeting in 1907, Braque and Picasso began working on the development of Cubism in 1908. Both artists producing paintings of monochromatic color and complex patterns of faceted form.
