A retrospective of the French artist Georges Braque opened this week at the Grand Palais in Paris. The founding father of Cubism alongside Pablo Picasso, Braque was celebrated in the post-war period before passing into a period of relative obscurity.

It’s a 40-year first. Through January 6, 2014, the Grand Palais in Paris is featuring a huge retrospective of the work of Georges Braque (1882-1963), the inventor of collage, who along with Picasso developed the art style known as Cubism.

Boasting 240 of the artist’s paintings, the exposition, which opened its doors Wednesday, September 18, encompasses painter’s entire career.

From his Fauvist years through the Cubist collaboration with Picasso, his collages to his gigantic birds, Georges Braque dominated the pictorial history of the 20th Century.
