Le Coq au Vin from Picasso

Le Coq au Vin van Picasso - Lyklema Fine Art

Picasso Le Cock

Picasso had an exhibition in New York in 1939. This famous work from 1938 of the screaming rooster still hangs in the MOMA. He wanted to portray the rooster's belligerence, brutality and stupidity and made a caricature of it.

It's the same technique he used for La Guernica. Picasso is famous for his cubist work which was a protest against the violence of Franco's fascism. The most famous work of art by Picasso and modernism is no less than 27 square meters in size: La Guernica. Pablo made this work within two weeks for the World Exhibition in Paris in 1937.
