Houses at l'Estaque (French: Maisons à l'Estaque) is a 1908 oil painting by Georges Braque. It is considered either an important pre-cubist landscape or the first Cubist landscape. The painting prompted art critic Louis Vauxcelles to mock it as being composed of cubes which led to the name of the movement.
It is a response to works by Paul Cézanne who also lived in L'Estaque at times.
