The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou - Musée national d'art moderne, devotes an exhibition to two major artists of the 20th century, the painter Georges Braque (1882-1963) and the sculptor Henri Laurens (1885-1954). Working in Montmartre from 1911, Henri Laurens met Georges Braque and began with him a deep and decisive friendship. Braque initiated him into Cubism, a revelation nourished by the example of Cézanne. The exhibition examines the work of the two artists who remained in close contact throughout their life.
