Georges Braque : A Bio-Bibliography Hardback
Part of the Bio-Bibliographies in Art and Architecture series
The first comprehensive research guide and bibliography to the large literature surrounding the life and work of one of the 20th century's greatest artists, this volume includes information on more than 1,100 books and articles as well as a chronology, biographical sketch, and list of exhibitions.
The secondary bibliography is arranged by topic and includes citations on the artist's life and career, his relationships with contemporary artists (notably Picasso), his influence on subsequent artists, his work in diverse artistic media as well as his oeuvre in general, iconography, and more.
While concentrating on printed materials, this guide also includes selected manuscripts and audio-visual materials. Following a biographical sketch and chronology, the primary bibliography lists articles, essays, letters, interviews, manuscripts, and sketchbooks of Braque.
The main part of the secondary bibliography lists monographs, catalogues, dissertations, theses, periodical articles, films, and selected newspaper articles.
Substantial book reviews and exhibition reviews are also cited.
Arranged by topic, this bibliography includes citations on Braque's career and development as an artist, his relationships with contemporary artists, a section on Braque/Picasso, his influence on other artists, his work in various media including paintings, drawings, prints, illustrated books, papiers decoupes, sculpture, jewelry, theatre designs, and other commissions.
Georges Braque first came to world attention as Picasso's friend during the formative years of Cubism.
Long overshadowed by his more famous contemporary, in the quarter-century after his death Braque is beginning to be evaluated accurately.
Major retrospective exhibitions over the past decade, accompanied by a considerable body of new criticism and scholarship, have brought Braque into the spotlight.
