Throwback Thursday: Pablo Picasso originally created Dove of Peace (1966) for a scarf celebrating the Third World Festival of Youth and Students in 1951, the motto of which was “For Peace and Friendship – Against Nuclear Weapons.” The festival was held in Berlin during a period of growing international tension between the Soviet Union and the West.
Springbok Editions, a notable maker of expensive, complex, and well-crafted puzzles, commissioned this jigsaw puzzle in the 1960s. This product was brought to you courtesy of Lawrence Banka and Judith Gordon.Photo by Lloyd Hryciw. Post via Art Markit.
