Georges Braque (1882-1963) was born in Argenteuil, and was taught painting by his father. He studied at Le Havre before going to Paris, where he was influential in founding the Cubist movement with Picasso. Braque, in the French Army in 1914, received a head wound which rendered him temporarily blind, and it was some years before he could again paint. His works include landscapes, figure paintings and still lifes, and he is regarded as one of France's greatest painters of the twentieth century.
