DAILY ART FIX: The Neglected Afterlife of the Great Georges Braque

Art world links which caught my eye…

Georges Braque “Théière noire et deux citrons” oil on panel, 12 3/8″ x 19 1/4″ (1948)

I’ve written before on French artist Georges Braque’s quiet power. His observations translated into paint have a mysterious, poised solidity and elegance. Is he being overlooked in today’s art market of flash and trash? This article thinks so, and presents a compelling take on Braque’s works.

He merely got on with it, year after year, making still life paintings of such restraint and subtlety, and much else too. None of the paintings on these walls shouts at us. They speak of self-containment, of a quietly impassioned, ongoing dedication to the task at hand. If anything, they seem to live and breathe, and even be in defiance of any easy notion of modernity.
