The paintings by George Braque inspired by the sea views and landscapes of Varengeville were made into lithographs and published by Maeght on his supervisor. In most cases the artist himself chose the pieces and the printing process which to him seemed most appropriate. He assisted in the execution of the lithographs, (Dora Vallier catalogue raisonee of Braque’s works).
