Serigraph (silkscreen) print after a painting by the giant of modern art, GEORGES BRAQUE (1882-1963), 18" by 27 1/2" (25" by 34 1/2" framed), signed in the print at lower left. Braque needs little introduction, as one of the famous names of modern art, who in the early years of the century developed, along with his friend Picasso, the Cubism movement, which changed the art world forever. Throughout his life he interacted with other famous artists including Friesz, Derain, Matisse, Laurencin, Dufy, Picabia, Juan Gris, and others. Within the past few years, a painting by Braque exceeded ten million dollars at auction. This print will provide a touch of his genius in your home or office for a fraction of that sum (one of several Braque prints I am offering in my Ruby Lane shop). The piece has no protective glass, so has acquired a few flaws over time, including an approximately 3" scratch/dig in the paper at upper right, and several other thin surface scratches at lower center and bottom left. The flaws do not greatly diminish the decorative appeal, but if you are looking for a perfect, mint example, this one is not for you. Many of these prints have acquired scratches over the years because of the way they were framed often without glass. This is a timeless, fine and collectable addition to home or office.
