Georges Braque (1882 - 1963)
Beautiful 18K Gold Brooch by Georges Braque (1882-1963), inventor of cubism.
Signed "Bijoux de Braque" and numbered 1/8.
The gouache from "Bijoux de Braque" called "Tereus" is reproduced on photo 5.
The piece is called "Tereus", after the son of Ares.
Very Good Overall Condition. Small coloration of gold (in the heart of the bird) which gives a beautiful patina to the piece.
This brooch is very significative of the "Bijoux de Braque" style, representing a very important period in Georges Braque painting, the one of "Ateliers" (Workshops), where birds are apearing. This bird was drawn many times by Georges Braque. You may see an exemple in photo 5.
