Georges Braque (Argenteuil, 13 mei 1882 - Parijs, 31 augustus 1963) was een Franse kunstschilder, tekenaar, beeldhouwer en maker van collages. Hij was mede toonaangevend voor nieuwe richtingen in de moderne 20ste-eeuwse kunst.
Georges Braque grandit au sein d’une famille d’artisans. Il est le fils d'Augustine Johannet (1859-1942) et de Charles Braque (1855-1911), peintre-décorateur et entrepreneur de peintures en bâtiment "Charles Braque et Cie" , [D 1], également « peintre du dimanche » et ancien élève de Théodule Ribot.
Georges Braque was born on 13 May 1882 in Argenteuil, Val-d'Oise. He grew up in Le Havre and trained to be a house painter and decorator like his father and grandfather. However, he also studied artistic painting during evenings at the École des Beaux-Arts , in Le Havre, from about 1897 to 1899.
Georges Braque nel 1908. Georges Braque (AFI: [ʒɔʁʒ bʁak]; Argenteuil, 13 maggio 1882 – Parigi, 31 agosto 1963) è stato un pittore e scultore francese, che assieme a Pablo Picasso è stato l'iniziatore del Cubismo.
Georges Braque was guided from a young age toward creative painting techniques. His father managed a decorative painting business and Braque's interest in texture and tactility perhaps came from working with him as a decorator. In 1899, at age seventeen, Braque moved from Argenteuil into Paris, accompanied by friends Othon Friesz and Raoul Dufy.
