Georges Braque
Born in 1882 in Argenteuil (France), deceased in 1963 in Paris (France)

He founded the Cubist movement with Picasso around 1907, and exhibited the first of these works at the Armory Show in New York in 1913.

Famous above all for his still lifes and paper collages, he received the International Grand Prize at the Venise Biennale of 1948.
All of his jewelry are the products of a fruitful collaboration with the Baron Heger de Lowenfeld, who he called “the extension of my own hands”.
