XIX - XXth century sculptures
BRAQUE Georges (1882-1963)
He studied at the Beaux-Arts and then joined the Fauvist movement in 1904, along with famous names such as Matisse, before becoming a major figure of cubism with Picasso. Also a painter, it's in the 1930s that he executed sculptures that seemed directly inspired from his paintings, with indented figures, stylized shapes, engraved plaster or superposed bronzes in the manner of antic objects. He frequently works on the same themes such as human figures, animals, fish and horses inspired from mythology and created with different materials like stone, ceramic and bronze.
