Jeune garçon au cheval ("English: Boy Leading a Horse) is an early painting by "Pablo Picasso. It is a work from "Picasso's Rose Period, having been painted in 1905-06 in Paris.

The painting was first owned by "Ambroise Vollard. It then passed through the hands of numerous people through the years:

Julius Schoeps, director of the Moses Mendelssohn institute for European Jewish studies on the University of Potsdam near Berlin, as speaker of the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy heirs, sued the Museum in 2007 for the painting, and "Jed S. Rakoff ruled that Mendelssohn-Bartholdy had been forced to sell the painting by the "Nazi Party. The Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation then sued the heir, Julius Schoeps. The dispute, however, ended up being settled out of court in 2009, with the museum retaining the work.

In "Vladimir Nabokov's novel "Pale Fire, Professor Kinbote says he placed in his lodging-house "the reproduction of a beloved early Picasso: earth boy leading raincloud horse".
