Would you believe that there has been just one career-length survey of Georges Braque’s work in the United States since 1950? On February 13 — a week from today — the Museum of Fine Arts Houston opens "Georges Braque: A Retrospective," which will feature 75 works from throughout Braque’s career. The exhibition debuted at the Grand Palais in Paris.
The exhibition will feature three of Braque’s late, great ‘Billiard Table’ paintings, including the two featured here. At the top of this post is Billard Table (1945) from the Tate. Below it is Billiard Table (1944) from the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou.
On the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, Alison de Lima Greene talks about the MFAH’s Braque presentation, which will be on view through May 11. de Lima Green is the MFAH’s curator of contemporary art and  special projects. Among the exhibitions she has organized are “Czech Modernism: 1900-1945,” “Twentieth-Century American Sculpture at the White House,” and “Kenneth Noland: The Nature of Color.”

art history meme | 2/9 paintings → Mulberry Tree by Vincent van Gogh (1889)
In the spring of 1889 van Gogh committed himself to an asylum at Saint-Rémy. During his lucid periods, between periodic attacks of what seems to have been epilepsy, he was constantly working, creating dazzling compositions of vigorous brushwork and energetic spontaneity. This painting was of particular interest to van Gogh, who wrote about it three times in letters to his brother and sister, commenting that he believed it was the best of his mulberry tree paintings.  ★
