Georges Braque (1882-1963) was a notable French artist, considered, together with Pablo Picasso, to be the founding father of Cubism, one of the definitive art movements of the 20th Century. He is probably one of the best known French painters today. Georges Braque was born on May 13, 1882, in the village of Argenteuil-sur-Seine, the village made famous by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet and, most of all, Claude Monet. His family soon moved away, in search of work, and finally settled in the northern port town of Le Havre, where Georges' father started a painting and decorating business.
