Owls can be found throughout Picasso's career, in all manner of styles and mediums. His Owl ceramics were particularly charming, with the spout of the item being used as the bird's beak.

In this section we examine two of his best known drawings, which bear similar looks to his portraits of Dog, Camel and Penguin.

Picasso is known to have taken in several animals through a variety of means, sometimes taking on friends' own pets, whilst in other cases finding stray birds and animals which were in need of care and attention.

An owl was one such creature who Pablo helped to restore to it's best health and this helped to impart a general love of owls on him.
