Another Brock... Georges Braque, Artist

"Georges Braque (13 May 1882 – 31 August 1963) was a major 20th century French painter and sculptor who, along with Pablo Picasso, developed the art movement known as Cubism."

Pronounced as "Zhorzh Brahk," this Brock is attributed with saying, "Reality only reveals itself when it is illuminated by a ray of poetry." Had he not died before I began writing, I might have suspected he considered that after reading my reviews. 

He also said, "Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny." Was he there when I drank Slim-Fast (review)? 

I like the way he thought.
