[Least-aspected Venus] [Pluto]
The more one probes, the more one deepens the mystery; it’s always out of reach [...] Objects do not exist for me except in so far as a rapport exists between them and myself. In other words, it is not the objects that matter to me but what is in between them; it is this ‘in between’ that is the real subject of my pictures. When one reaches this state of harmony between things and oneself, one reaches a sort of intellectual néant–what I can only describe as a state of perfect freedom and peace–which makes everything possible and right. Life then becomes a perpetual revelation.
–Georges Braque, from Braque, by John Richardson.
Georges Braque, the co-originator (with Picasso) of Cubism, was born near Paris in Argenteuil, France (48N57; 2E15): close to the setting position of his Primary Venus. Braque studied at the academy of fine arts in Le Havre (49N30; 0E08) and in a private academy in Paris (1902-1904). After viewing the Paris Salon d’Automne in 1905, he was influenced by the Fauves, which resulted in his temporary relocation to the South of France, to sites directly under his Primary Venus: Antwerp; the Mediterranean coast, near Marseille; L’Estaque (43N22; 5E20); and La Ciotat (43N10; 5E36).
Braque’s later relocation to the south during the summer of 1908 resulted in a series of paintings that led to “significant transformations / in art” (Secondary Pluto / Primary Venus): in particular, “Houses at L’Estaque,” in which the key elements of what would later be dubbed “Cubism”–fractured, multiple perspective; simplified dimensionality; and toned-down palette–begin to play a prominent role.
Honored with awards, international recognition, and retrospectives during his final years, in December 1961 Braque became the first living artist to exhibit in the Louvre.
