This retrospective, dedicated to the major 20th century artist Georges Braque, will survey all the periods of his artistic creation, from Fauvism to his final works culminating in the magnificent art studios and birds series. The exhibition will focus on highlights in his career, such as Cubism, the Canéphores (Basket Carriers) of the 1920’s, and his final landscapes.
Exhibition organized by the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais and the Centre Pompidou.

This is an amazing exhibition of an artist whose contribution to modern art is not as well known as Picasso. In fact, prior to seeing this exhibition, I thought Braque was a follower or student of Picasso. This exhibition demonstrates that Braque was a revolutionary artist of equal stature - a collaborator, not a student.
Catch it if you can and the catalog is also superb.
