The work of Georges Braque features predominantly Fauvist and Cubist paintings, with his career providing a significant influence on the direction of 20th century art.

Whilst the artist's occasional journeys into offshoots of impressionism brought bright colour, he was most productive with sombre cubist art which reflected the troubled times of that era.

The early work of Braque was impressionist-based, inspired by the influential work of artists like Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet and Edouard Manet. It was to be the foundation of his skillset, before he later moved on to Fauvism and Cubism.

It was his work with Cubism, and significant role in creating this art movement, which place him as an important artist. His work with Matisse and Picasso meant he was a respected artist with impressive connections.

The artist also worked with other mediums besides oils on canvas, including various materials for his sculptures and lithographs, plus also some stained glass windows.

The work included in this section covers some of the highlights from his painting collection, with Cubism featuring heavily.
