Cahier de Georges Braque, 1917–1977
This product is currently sold out.
A beautiful reproduction of the cahier de Georges Braques, the artist's notebooks from 1917–77. Facsimiles of Braques' illustrations and cursive thoughts are generously reproduced on light and creamy paper, like an archive of his creativity over time. One is invited to follow the dark line of his ideas, looping from philosophical aphorisms to quippy captions to an original sketch on every page. We see Braques' inner life was prolific, his sketches distinctly recognizable over the years. This output and formal consistency is an expression of the special relationship between image and text, that for Braque, has left us a timeline of stills from the evolution of the artist's mind.
