Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928–1945


image alt

Karen K. Butler with Renée Maurer and contributions by Patricia Favero, Uwe Fleckner, Gordon Hughes, Narayan Khandekar, Erin Mysak, and Éric Trudel 

Featuring five essays and two newly translated texts by Braque’s contemporaries Jean Paulhan and Carl Einstein, this fully illustrated color catalog offers the first in-depth scholarship on Georges Braque’s still-life paintings within the cultural and political context of Europe leading up to and during World War II. In the process the book recounts Braque’s early popularity in the United States, including his first major retrospective in America, and the critical reception of his work in Europe. Also included are the findings of a team of conservation scientists who closely examined select paintings, shedding new light on Braque’s lifelong investigation into the materials and process of painting.
