On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the artist’s death, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is pleased to present Georges Braque, the most ambitious retrospective held in Spain to date of the work of Georges Braque (1882–1963), one of the most prominent figures on the early 20th-century avant-garde scene. This chronological overview covers every period of his artistic career, from his early Fauvist phase to his final series dedicated to studios, birds, and the landscapes of Varengeville.
Thanks to generous loans from the Centre Georges Pompidou and other major international public and private collections, the show features nearly 250 pieces, including some of the greatest masterpieces by a man who, along with Picasso, laid the foundations of Cubism and invented the papiers collés, or “pasted papers,” collage technique.
