Picasso and Braque – A “Bro-mance” That Forever Changed the Art World

Georges Braque, 'Glass on a Table', 1909-10

It’s a rare thing when artists who usually work alone, collaborate. It’s even rarer when that collaboration proves to be a revolutionary moment in the history of the genre. Such was the case with artists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. From 1910 to 1912, they barely left each other’s side. Their collective work during this brief period is known as analytic “cubism”. Eik Kahng is Chief Curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and she explains why the work of these two men during this brief two-year period was an artistic game changer. “Picasso and Braque: The Cubist Experiment, 1910-1912” is on display at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art through January 8th.
