Fridge Magnets Picasso Face of Peace
£4.15 inc. tax

£4.15 ex. tax
? Tax based on United Kingdom.

As with the related Dove of Peace (which you will also find in our artsinhistory.com store), the Face of Peace is stylistically very different from the constructivist or abstract artist Picasso. This different signature is caused by the need to express himself clearly in the face of war and unrest in this world. Hence, in order to give a clear message, Picasso turned towards realist art works in the after-war period. The Face of Peace is part of that series which he produced in 1949/1950 (there are 29 designs in total). At that time, Picasso was together with Françoise Gilot, herself a painter and also a bestselling writer who also designed costumes, stage sets, and masks for productions. From the year 1973 she directed the Virginia Woolf Quarterly, and having moved into academia, she joined the Department of Fine Arts at the University of Southern California.
But she is probably best remembered as the lover and artistic muse of Picasso who was together with her for almost ten years (from 1944 to 1953). Of her was the girl whom they called 'Paloma' after the Dove of Peace. The design of the Face of Peace displays Picassos political commitment: as with the other designs (and of course Guernica) he was fighting for a peaceful world.

If you want to secure more of these delicate designs, we also have other motives of Picasso on offer.
