Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was a French composer, organist, teacher and ornithologist.
One of the most influential composers of the 20th century.
His avant-garde music often incorporates transcriptions of birdsong and was influenced by his deep religious convictions.
This is a reproduction of my print, the original of which (available directly from me) was an etching (the central portrait) with a collagraph border and collaged gilt effect birds.
The original was 12" x 12" and was printed on Somerset paper.
