Soleil Et Lune. 1959. Original lithograph printed in color. 8 1/2x 3 11/16 (sheet 15 x 10 7/8). Vallier, Dora. Braque. The Complete Graphics, London 1988, p. 294, No. 1034. Vallier, Dora. Braque. The Complete Graphics, London 1988, p. 294, No. 1035 The artwork is from the issue No. 115 of the periodical Derrière le miroir, published on the occasion of a major Braque exhibitions at the Maeght gallery in 1959, where 19 paintings and 8 gouaches by the artist were shown. The complete, artist's portfolio, that includes 9 colored lithographs in colors was printed by Mourlot. Initialed in the stone. Please note that in the publication, text was on the back of the sheet. Initialed in the stone. Housed in a 20 x 16-inch archival mat. The artwork represents three birds in flight in front of a dark sky with a red sun and a yellow moon. The two hemispheres of sun and moon directly near each other. Black, brown and blue birds fly before the sun and moon. The periodical Derrière le miroir born in 1946 from an idea of Aimé and Marguerite Maeght, owners of the Maeght Gallery in Paris, in order to distribute original graphic work by "their" artists. The periodical Derrière le Miroir served as both, exhibition catalog for Maeght shows as well as a forum for the distribution of less expensive original graphic works. French painter, collagist and sculptor Georges Braque is, along with Pablo Picasso, renowned as the co-founder of Cubism, which revolutionized 20th-century painting. In his work, objects are fragmented and reconstructed into geometric forms, fracturing the picture plane in order to explore a variety of viewpoints. “The hard-and-fast rules of perspective … were a ghastly mistake which…has taken four centuries to redress,” he said in 1957.
