Description

Three men made art modern: Henry Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. And yet while Picasso and Matisse have been justly celebrated, Braque has remained eclipsed and elusive, rarely recognised fully for his contribution not only to twentieth-century art but also how we see the world. Alex Danchev's scintillating biography of Braque - the first - draws the painter out of the shadows cast by his peers and shows how Braque's heroic and multi-faceted life helped inform and create the greatest revolution in art since the Renaissance.
