Georges Braque

French painter and sculptor, 1882-1963

Braque’s most important contributions to the history of art were in his alliance with Fauvism from 1906, and the role he played in the development of Cubism. Braque’s work between 1908 and 1912 is closely associated with that of his colleague Pablo Picasso. Their respective Cubist works were indistinguishable for many years, yet the quiet nature of Braque was partially eclipsed by the fame and notoriety of Picasso. By the time of his death in 1963, he was regarded as one of the elder statesmen of the School of Paris, and of modern art.

To his "cher Scherwashitzé": "Nous allons de nouveau travailler ensemble. Je n'ai probablement pas le plaisir de vous l'apprendre. Diaghilev a déjà dû vous dire de quoi il s'agissait. Je me suis déjà mis au travail, seulement je voudrais bien avoir une construction de la scène de Monte Carlo comme celle que vous m'avez faite pour 'les Fâcheux'. Cela a facilité beaucoup mon travail [...]" (transl: "We are going to work together again. I probably do not have the pleasure of being the first to tell you this.

I am sure Diaghilev has already told you what this is all about. I have already started work, only I would like to have a construction of the Monte Carlo scene like the one you did for 'Les Fâcheux'. It made my work much easier [...]"). - Braque designed for Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes the sets and costumes for Les Fâcheux (1924) and Zéphyr et Flore (1925)..

To a Madame, in French, about preparations for an exhibition. Braque is "very happy to see our projects in progress. The date of February seems a little close, but above all we must talk about it together before taking decisions". They will see each other in Paris, but that doesn't stop him from making progress on the project: "So as not to waste time, I am already busy choosing the paintings [...]. I spoke with Ginstein, who is very interested and on whom we can count. In order to keep this exhibition as important as possible, I have decided not to exhibit in Zurich and it will be better that way [...]" (transl.). - Punched holes in left margin (not touching text); in fine condition.
