Georges Braque

Order & Emotion

29.06 - 28.09.2003

An exhibition of the works by the great French painter, sculptor and engraver Georges Braque (1882-1963), entitled Georges Braque: Order and Emotion - co-founder of Cubism together with Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) - was presented for the first time in Greece. The exhibition presented major works from almost the entire wide range of Braque's œuvre.

The French artist worked around certain main themes that preoccupied him in every medium he employed (oil paintings, works on paper, sculptures, prints and ceramics): still lifes, birds, musical instruments, interiors and ancient Greece.

The works of the exhibition Georges Braque: Order and Emotion were generously lent by the Maeght family (France), the Musée National d'Art Moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou, the Musée Picasso in Paris, the Galerie Jan Krugier, Ditesheim & Cie in Geneva, the Galerie Beyeler in Basle, and also by European collectors who wish to remain anonymous. A total of approximately 150 works (oil paintings, works on paper, sculptures, prints and ceramics) by the great French artist were presented.

A particularly meticulous and informative catalogue of excellent design and printing quality, accompanied the exhibition with essays by K. Koutsomallis, I. Monod-Fontaine, M. Enrici and F. Cadouot-Michou. A detailed chronology of the artist's life and work, as well as a selective bibliography is also included.
