No. 7870 of a limited edition of 900. Oatmeal cloth with a cover vignette by Braque, 24.3 by 19.2 cm, 55 [3] pp., 8 color plates by Braque, in original plain card slipcase. Text is in French. The book is very good with some faint soiling on the boards; light yellowing to the leaves and foxing to the endpapers and first and last few leaves. The slipcase is fair with edge wear, small stains, and drip marks. A beautiful book on Georges Braques (1882-1963), the French painter, printmaker, and sculptor best known for his involvement with the Cubism and Fauvism movements. Includes eight striking reproductions of work complete by Braque from 1958 and 1958. “Quelques mois avant sa mort, à Gif-sur-Yvette, Fernand Léger me déclarait: Braque, c’est un silencieux, un solitaire… Quoique nous cherchions tous deux le fait plastique en dehors de toute preoccupation sentimentale ou expressionniste, mes recherches sont à l’opposé des siennes, il est loin de moi, bien loin, mais quell peintre immense, immense et secret!”
