notas soltas - le portugais

Georges Braque (1882 -1963)
Le Portugais - 1911 (1,16m x 0,81m)

Le Portugais, painted by Braque in the summer of 1911, is an attempt to utilize the techniques and philosophies of Cubism to alter the viewer’s perception and definition of reality. In contrast to a more traditional, naturalistic work, which would accept the viewer’s preconceptions about the nature of reality and attempt to mimic them, Le Portugais unapologetically indulges in the idiosyncratic nature of Braque’s vision.
