This proud rooster goes with the “big hen”. These two paintings are small, with a close up framing and no specific context. Their identity stands for itself: The proud rooster is fiercely camped, displaying a clear arrogance and defiance, balanced by a complex palette of vivid colors. The big hen is attentive but more reserved. Her palette of colors is much softer, and the undulating surroundings contrast with the rigid posture of the rooster. This contrasting pair resonates among us because it’s totally iconic. Simple and true values.
