From inside dust jacket: "In his work [Georges] Braque has been content to treat a small number of themes. Usually, the more everyday objects figure in his works--a pitcher, flowers, fruits, shells, or birds in flight...In the simplicity and dignity of these graphic works and in the calm luminosity of the colors, things are quietly allowed to speak their own language in terms which engage our imaginations and sensibilities." Acquired from the private library of photorealist, Robert Bechtle and art historian, Whitney Chadwick.
