Braque gracefully contrasts 2 birds adrift a night sky. His use of rich blues and saturated blacks highlighted by white accents makes this piece a quintessential Braque. This simple image is dominated by two birds stacked vertically atop one another. They appear to be flying towards each other as one swoops down from the upper left while the other soars up from the lower right, their wings touching ever so slightly. Three twinkling white stars surround the birds, giving us the allusion this scene is taking place amidst a clear night sky. The rich shades and tones of the lapis lazuli blue makes this work stand out, as the colors are absolutely stunning.
