Picasso's better half

Georges Braque was a Parisian painter, and the founder of Cubism alongside Pablo Picasso. In addition to the invention of Cubism, he touched many of the prominent artistic styles of the time. Impressionismfauvism, and even collage — brought together a series of imaginative pieces, bold colors, and distinct shapes and styles to his work. During the wartime period, the work he put together would change in order to represent the somber, dark period the world was going through. Between wartimes he would represent lighter, happier themes. Although he did change his style, tone, color use, and design features, he never strayed too far away from Cubism. There were also tinges or hints of this style, in every piece that he created during the course of his career, and is the reason his work was so distinct, in comparison to other artists of the time, who did not delve in to as many different forms in their work.
