Magnificent original Picasso sketch of a 'dove of peace'

Amazing original ballpoint sketch of his famous dove of peace, accomplished by Picasso on an off-white 6.75 x 5 album page, prominently signed across the top, "Picasso." In fine condition, with light overall rippling. With Picasso's 'Guernica' hailed as one of the history's most moving anti-war paintings, the artist was invited to design an image representing peace for the First International Peace Conference, held in Paris in 1949. Invoking the symbolic dove, Picasso's design has become one of the world's most recognizable symbols of peace. A moving portrayal of this iconic international emblem.
