About the Item: "L'oiseau de sables" ("Bird of the Sands") is an original signed lithograph by Georges Braque executed in 1962. It is 37 of an edition of 125. The work is one of five lithographs created for the illustrated book Braque Lithographe. The work depicts a bird in flight surrounded by a gold circle. The artist uses a reduced palette of subtle shades of blue, brown, and gold--befitting the work's title of "bird of the sands." The delicate creature has an understated elegance. The gold circle around the bird and the white background signify the bird's weightlessness. The artist's combination of colors and textures gives the lithograph a painterly feel.
