"the twin refulgent beams of Picasso and Braque"

Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a painter who, along with Picasso and Juan Fris, adapted the Cubism style of painting.

Beginning with impressionism, Braque was soon inspired by Fauvism, which combined colour to great effect to convey captured emotions on canvas.

From 1908–1913 however, Braque's interest in  geometry and simultaneous perspective saw him create the type of art which would become known as Cubism.
