In early 20th century Paris, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were equally well known after they created the Cubist style of painting.  Today, Picasso is a household name while Braque is virtually unknown outside of art history circles.

Washington University’s Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum puts the spotlight on Braque with the opening of the exhibition ‘Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928–1945.’ 

Produced in collaboration with The Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., the Braque exhibition is co-curated by the Kemper’s Assistant Curator Karen Butler.  She and The Phillips Collection’s Art Conservator Patricia Favero were Steve Potter’s guests on “Cityscape” to discuss the work of Braque, Cubism and the exhibition at the Kemper.
