Braque Is Back 

Whereas Jonathan Richman and Paul McCartney both wrote songs referencing Pablo Picasso, we don't know of any popular music that alludes to Georges Braque. The Spaniard Picasso and the Frenchman Braque jointly pioneered cubism, yet it's the former painter who has the lion's share of name recognition among the general public. A new exhibit at Washington University's Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (Forsyth and Skinker boulevards; 314-935-4523 or www.kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu) will go a long way toward better informing anyone on the signal importance of Braque to 20th-century modern art. Georges Braque and the Cubist Still Life, 1928-1945, is the first major U.S. exhibition in sixteen years solely focused on the groundbreaking work of the master abstractionist. The show opens with a free public reception from 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, January 25, and it remains up through Sunday, April 21. The gallery is open every day except Tuesday.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 25. Continues through April 21, 2013
