1. Drawing & Painting Art IBy: Your NameMs. LeesFourth period class 2. Georges BraqueGeorges Braquewas born in May 13,1882, in Argenteuil-sur-Seine, near Paris.He was inspired by the painter Paul Cezanne.Braque's interest in Czanne's strangely distortedforms andunconventional perspective led him topaint in the manner that came to be known as cubism.He studied the effects of light and perspective and thetechnical means that painters use to represent theseeffects.He questioned most standard artistic conventions.He would reduce an architectural structure to ageometric form; for example, a cube or a rectangular prism.He would rendered its shading so that its volume seemed tolooked both flat and three-dimensional. This would call attentionto the very nature of visual illusion and artistic representation.Georges Braque Photograph by Sanford RothGeorges Braque, April 20 through June 5, 1960, Pasadena Art Museum, Pasadena, California 3.
