Years earlier, in 1949, the author Louis Aragon had chosen Picasso's serene lithograph "La Colombe" (The Dove), to commemorate the very first Peace Conference in Paris. The dove was already associated with he peace movement and Picasso's unique take on the bird was joyfully received. In the years that followed, the artist agreed to provide his alluring doves for peace conferences all across Europe. Ed. 8,000 - in 5 (different languages). Ref. Czwiklitzer # 201.
