Notes Braque played a major role in the development of what became known as Cubism. Braque's work is intertwined with that of his collaborator Pablo Picasso, especially from 1908 to 1912, particularly regarding their respective contributions to the development of the collage. Picasso's fame and notoriety often overshadowed the quiet life of Braque.
