Photograph signed and illustration of the dove of peace by Picasso.

Dimensions: 3 x 4.5 Inches (7 x 11.5 cm)

Condition: Excellent vintage signed photograph by Picasso, incorporating an original drawing.

The image depicts the artist in a full-length pose, wearing white shorts and sandals, standing second in line alongside two unidentified ladies and a gentleman. Picasso's eldest child, Paulo Picasso, is at the back of the line. The five appear to be standing on a small outdoor stage in what seems to be a restaurant, with several empty tables and chairs in the background—signed 'Picasso' in blue fountain pen ink with his surname only at the base of the image. Picasso has added a charming, small ink drawing of a dove in flight to a clear area at the head of the picture.

Extremely rare and desirable in this format. In fine condition, with some very light surface creasing and minor age wear.

For Picasso, the dove was both an important political and personal symbol. In 1949, he created the lithograph Dove (La Colombe) in an edition of 50 with five proofs. The image of a white dove on a black background is widely considered a symbol of peace and was used to illustrate a poster at the 1949 Paris Peace Congress.


The photograph comes with a Picasso Authentication Certificate, issued and signed by Claude Ruiz-Picasso, dated April 25th 2022, in Geneva, Switzerland.

Comes with a James Spence Authentication (JSA) Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity
