A crucial change in Braque’s art came in the fall of 1907, when he rediscovered Paul Cezanne at the memorial exhibitions at the Salon d’Automne and the Bernheim-Jeune Gallery. At this time, he also met Picasso. In the late work of Cezanne, both Braque and Picasso saw a new geometrization of form and new spatial relationships that were to become the basis of cubism.(Grolier)
