Boats on the Beach at L'Estaque

Georges Braque French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 823

Following in the footsteps of Cézanne and Derain, Braque spent part of the fall of 1906 and the following winter in the Mediterranean fishing village of L’Estaque. This vibrantly colored harbor view reflects his discovery, at the Salon d’Automne of 1905, of the Fauve painters.
