"FLOCK OF BIRDS" OIL ON CANVAS
CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM.
This appealing oil was probably painted in the 1960s. A high-contrast color palette—which includes a rich, powdery turquoise pastel—creates a moderated chiaroscuro. We think its composition and flattened perspective evoke Picasso's "Les Demoiselles D'Avignon." Do the primitivist elements seen in some of the cubist forms wink at the dinosaurian origin of birds?
