Georges Braque (May 13, 1882-Aug. 31, 1963) was a major 20th century French painter and sculptor. He, along with Picasso, developed the Cubist movement. He painted houses during the day and studied artistic painting during the evenings at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Le Havre before moving to Paris where he attended Academie Humbert. At first his style was impressionistic until he discovered and adapted to the Fauvist style. He exhibited his Fauvist work at the Salon des Independants before being influenced by Paul Cezanne. CezanneÕs work affected many of the avant-garde artists of Paris causing it to transform into Cubism. He died in Paris and is buried in the cemetery of the Church of St. Valery in Varengevill-sur-Mer, Normandy, whose windows he designed.
