Georges Braque's vocation as a painter has been refined throughout his life. In 1899, he began as an apprentice painter and decorator before moving to Paris in 1903 to study the fine arts. He then painted his first canvases of Impressionist influence in 1905, before approaching Fauvism with compositions such as the Port de l'Estaque in 1906.
From 1908, his works broke with traditional aesthetics. Braque then tries to transpose three-dimensional objects on two-dimensional tables. To do this, he works with Pablo Picasso on recomposition and geometrization. He then created canvases such as Violin and Palette in 1909. Subsequently, he pushed the search further into his paintings, then tried to sculpture and engraving.
With Picasso, Braque is the co-founder of the cubist movement that will dominate the early 20th century.
