Description

It’s been 50 years since the death of artist Georges Braque, but his work continues to impress and influence. A friend and colleague of Picasso (the two are credited with the invention of Cubism), Braque is often under-recognized for his contributions, but in “Georges Braque: A Retrospective,” now on exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the importance and impact of his work is undeniable. “Georges Braque is unquestionably one of the finest and most influential painters of the 20th century, yet he remains less recognized than his friend and collaborator, Pablo Picasso,” said MFAH Director Gary Tinterow. “This exhibition…reveals his genius to new audiences.” The show, a condensed version of an exhibition that just closed at the Grand Palais in Paris, is the first U.S. survey in 25 years to focus on Braque, and MFAH is the only U.S. venue for the exhibition.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 12:15 to 7 p.m. Sundays. Through May 11. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit mfah.org. Free with paid museum admission (free to $13).
