Mario Naves reviews the exhibition Georges Braque: Pioneer of Modernism at Acquavella Galleries, New York, on view through November 30, 2011.

Naves remarks: "From the early fauvist landscapes to the invention and refining of Cubism to the darker, more equivocal works of the 1940s and '50s, Pioneer of Modernism elaborates upon Braque's oeuvre with surprising depth. He emerges as a gentle temperament with tenacious gifts, a painter given to poetic and often moody reveries."
