Georges Braque was born in 1882 and raised in Le Havre, where he studied fine arts from 1897 to 1899 and began painting in the Impressionist style.

He then went to Paris to study at the Humbert Academy, where he met Marie Laurencin and Francis Picabia.

In 1906, as an Impressionist, he became a Fauvist and by 1908 he was entitled to a solo exhibition in the gallery of Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler.

He met Picasso, and they worked together to create cubism.

A powerful reciprocal influence, resulting in very similar styles for both artists.

In 1912, they both began to incorporate collages into their works, including pasted paper.

Their joint work lasted until 1914, with the arrival of the First World War.

Georges Braque was wounded during the fighting and received care for his healing until 1917 when he became friends with Juan Gris.

After exhibiting at the Salon d'Automne in Paris, his fame sat in 1922.

He also created sets for Serge Diaghilev's ballets.

In the late 1920s, cubism began to gain less importance in his works.

The two paintings by Georges Braque exhibited at the museum Peggy Guggenheim, “The Clarinet” and “The Bowl of Grapes” show well its evolution from rigorous cubism towards the first attenuation of it in the 1920s.
