In the brilliant Pablo Picasso Colombe Volant (Flying Dove), 1952, a prestigious dove spreads his wings with strength and confidence. Dignified in simple black and white, the dove's feathers are ruffled in the midst of flight as if soaring over a bright sky. This attention to naturalism breathes life into the work and creates the illusion of effortless flight, while central placement establishes the dove's regal importance. Loose and informal strokes of the pastel background colors send our dove into the blissful heavens that vibrate with freedom. The symbol of the dove breaks free from the confinement of official government representations in this spirited and vivid Picasso.

Created in 1952, this color lithograph is numbered from the edition of 200. This piece is hand signed by Pablo Picasso (Malaga, 1881 - Mougins, 1973) in pencil in the lower right margin along with the plate signature and date.
