This is part of a series of views Picasso painted from the window of his studio at La Californie in 1957. Pigeons would cluster about with the sea and sky in the distance. The series was done about the same time as his ambitious Las Meninas cycle.

The Pigeons, Cannes is part of the body of work Matisse and Bonnard also made famous. Evoking the physical pleasures and sunlit happiness of southern climes, Matisse in particularly created a number of pictures with brilliantly colourful views through open windows, seen from a cool, dark interior.

When Matisse died in 1954 Picasso said 'I have to paint for both of us now.' Still The Pigeons has a more restless spirit than those of Matisse and Bonnard...A more detailed description & text in the book: Life and Works of Picasso
