In this volume, Henry R. Hope of the University of Indiana and editor of the College Art Journal, faithfully and clearly traces Braque's life, his triumphs and failures, from the date of his birth-May 13, 1882- to the present. We see him as the adolescent who loves sailing, the awkward student of impressionism, the young fauve, the cubist master, the ballet designer, the sculptor, the gourmet and connoisseur to whom 'even the act of stopping his work to smoke a cigarette is something to be done with relish and enjoyment.' Changes of attitude, style, motive, friends, even of summer houses, are carefully documented and described in a succinct, lucid style. 170 pp.; 135 illus. Published in 1948 and edited by Henry R. Hope, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse. MoMA’s award-winning publications program has been an integral part of the Museum’s mission since its founding in 1929.
