George Braque e a Natureza Morta Cubista, 1928-1945

No início do século 20, Georges Braque e Pablo Picasso inventaram o cubismo e abalaram os fundamentos da arte ocidental. Mas na década de 1930, como a ascensão do fascismo trouxe nova urgência para questões de estética e política - as questões que entraram como consciência prioritária como a Guernica de Picasso (1937) - fizeram com que as naturezas mortas e interiores burgueses fraturadas  de Braque  permanecessem enfaticamente introvertidas.

In the early 20th century, Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso invented Cubism and shook the foundations of Western art. But in the 1930s, as the rise of fascism brought new urgency to questions of aesthetics and politics — questions that entered mainstream consciousness with Picasso’s Guernica (1937) — Braque’s fractured still lifes and bourgeois interiors remained emphatically inward-looking.
