Duex Femme et une Colombe IV (Girls Heads with Dove) by Pablo Picasso
  • Pablo Picasso

  • Duex Femme et une Colombe IV (Girls Heads with Dove) , 1956

  • Original Lithograph

  • Rare second state with additional color in the design, yellow and green bands below. There was an earlier unsigned edition in two colors (blue-red only)
    It is believed that this rare print was created for an anti-war poster with the Dove of Peace and Janus type head of lady. It is unknown if it protests the French-Algerian conflict. The final poster was never realized. We could find no record of the rare full color second state coming up for auction. It is believed the financial backers of the Peace Rally were presented these signed limited edition full color prints and the general public sold the two color unsigned ones to raise funds.
