Georges Braque was a multimedia artist whose work garnered international attention in the world of art. His early work resembles impressionism but after being inspired by a young group of artists in early 20th century Paris known as the Fauves, he transitioned to a more emotional and colorful style. Some of his early cubist work has also been associated with that of his contemporary, Pablo Picasso.
