"The elegantly gowned 'bird' in this print is wearing what appears to be a traditional scholar's rode adorned with an ermine-like collar. The line connecting the eyes suggests a pair of wire spectacles. The hands, always conveyors of Shahn's thoughts, are piously folded, quite befitting someone who is about to deliver a learned definition of culture." - Prescott. Signed with Conte crayon upper left under orange-red chop. The satirical quotation is from "The Nature of Cultural Things" by Marvin Harris. 20th Century Subjects
