Ceramic Works of Pablo Picasso

New York – An important collection of Madoura ceramics by Pablo Picasso are among highlights in the Post-War & Contemporary Prints & Multiples sale at Bonhams on May 11.

Profoundly inspired by the bright palette of the Mediterranean landscape, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) began making ceramics in the South of France in the late 1940s. It was a creative process he considered a respite from his busy painting schedule. It was in Vallauris that Picasso met Suzanne and Georges Ramié, owners of the now famous Madoura ceramics studio. Becoming quick friends and eventually collaborators, Picasso returned every year to work at Madoura. It was a relationship that lasted 25 years, and changed Picasso's life. It was at Madoura, in 1953, that Picasso met Jacqueline Roque, who would later become the artist's second wife, and muse.

As evidenced by the impressive offering in this sale, many of Picasso's ceramics took the form of utilitarian objects that bear playful designs and colors. The auction will present 23 such ceramics by the artist, many of which come from an important single-owner collection in the United States.
