Lithography of 1979 by Studio d'Arte Perna - Milano

Numbered in lower left in Roman numerals "/ CC" ( /200)

Signed in the plate "G.Braque" at the bottom right with notarial documents.

Dimensions : 48 x 34 cm

Original lithograph Studio d'Arte Perna - Milano after "Les Étoiles" (1959) by George Braques. Probably Braque's finest work for the French art magazine "Derrière le miroir", which had a great influence in the 1950s and 1960s, this midnight blue motif of a beautiful white bird crossing a star-studded night sky was chosen by the estate to be published by Studio d'Arte Perna for its "L'Ecole de Paris" collection.

True synthesis of the work of Georges Braque: collage, trompe l'oeil, bird. It uses the techniques of assembly, representation evoking the volume without using the traditional perspective. The plumage of the bird is reminiscent of the torn wallpaper of his work in Céret with Picasso.

Georges Braque is a French artist and founder of the Cubist movement. First an Impressionist and then a Fauvist, Braque was already an avant-garde painter before developing the movement, heavily influenced by the techniques of Paul Cézanne, coloring his canvases with bright colors and inventive compositions. After seeing Pablo Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) in his studio, Braque explored its fractured perspective and incorporated it into his own work. Picasso and Braque would develop the Cubist aesthetic, refining its dramatic points of view and introducing elements of collage into revolutionary works that challenged preconceived notions of illusionism, painting and sight. From this point on, the "Braque-Picasso Ropeway" begins; with these two artists constantly researching and confronting each other. "What the meeting between Picasso and Braque brings out is that the motif is no longer painting..." (Pierre Daix). Braque and Picasso are often referred to as "the founders of Cubism".

Braque never stops inventing: he sculpts paper, cardboard, he cuts and glues, he mixes sawdust, sand ... The artist will make the decoration of the ceiling of the Etruscan room of the Louvre on the theme of the bird. He thus became the first painter to be exhibited in the Louvre during his lifetime.

This theme will be the subject of many of his works, the bird and the star will be for Braque the symbol of Freedom: "Freedom is not accessible to everyone. For many, it is placed between defense and permission." Georges Braque

The artist died in Paris on August 31, 1963 at the height of a brilliant and glorious career, he was one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century and the most prolific.
