Auguste Herbin (1882 – 1960), a Braque and Picasso’s workshops neighbor, studied Cubism whose influence prompted him to create his first Cubist paintings in 1913. The artist conceived in 1946 “plastic alphabet” a system of composition based on the structure of letters which forms the basis for the organization of his canvases.
