Georges Braque was one of the fathers of Cubism Along with Picasso he explored and invented a new way of painting that got its name from critics who pointed out small cubes in his earliest cubist works At the end of 1907 Braque met Picasso at the unveiling of The Ladies of Avignon This piece and a nude by Braque of late 1907 would become known as the first cubist paintings Both artists were inspired by Cezannes use of geometry in representing the subject matter in his painting These works being some of the first to reject the classical ideas of painting by portraying real subject matter abstractly rather then realistically it was only natural for the two artists to collaborate on future works The two began to discuss ideas and show one another their current works Eventually this collaboration became a like a partnership where their ideas were freely traded and built upon by one another At the peak of Analytic Cubism paintings by Braque and Picasso had great similarities and the pair often painted the same subject matter at the same time They worked so close Braque once said that they were like mountain climbers roped together and pulling one another up In 1908 Braque parted from his previous Fauvist style and began to paint in very limited palettes of subdued greens browns and ochers His work became very structured and more abstract His concern was with space multiplicity form and time rather then with color The idea was to show the subject from multiple angles Picassos work followed this pattern as well Braque however turned to still lives while Picasso did most of his work with human forms The differences between the two can be seen in works from the same time frame Picassos Vollard and Braques
