The Young Pigeon

Details:

Picasso engraved the bold and charming original linocut – The Young Pigeon in 1939. Through layered patches of black and white patterns, he wove together a tender and intricate portrait of a young bird huddled in its nest and staring wide-eyed at the world. This endearing image coveys Picasso’s lifelong love and admiration for birds. Starting in childhood, he kept a cage filled with pigeons and doves, and he learned to draw them from direct observation. He carried on this tradition his entire life, and his drawings of birds have become some of his most famous and beloved works.
