Catalogue Note

“I would find it hard to say whether Braque is the most inventive or versatile artist of our time. But if the great painter is the one who gives at once the most acute and the most nourishing idea of painting, then without doubt it is Braque who I take as master.”
—Jean Paulhan in Braque le patron, 1947, quoted in Alex Danchev, Georges Braque, A Life, New York, 2005, pp. 153-54
