LOUISIANA MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

Picasso: Ceramics

Edited by Michael Juul Holm, Helle Crenzien, Kirsten Degel. Foreword by Poul Erik Třjner. Text by Marilyn McCully, Harald Theil, Salvador Haro González, Lynda Morris.

Picasso: Ceramics

Picasso's ceramics express the restless, fluid ease of his late years

In 1946, Pablo Picasso visited an exhibition of ceramics in Vallauris, an area in southeastern France known for its many potteries. He would move to the region soon after, establishing a steady relationship with the Madoura ceramics workshop in 1948.

It was a watershed moment for Picasso, who throughout his long life was always on the lookout for new artistic challenges in all conceivable materials. Picasso's experiments with various ceramic materials, oxides and glazes would produce a huge body of work: some 4,000 ceramic objects bearing the motifs of animals, fauns and women evoked through Picasso's whimsical, elegant handling of shape and line. This major body of work in ceramics forms a lesser-known but highly original part of the oeuvre of an artist who was constantly reinventing himself and his forms.

This book presents more than 150 of Picasso's most important ceramic works reproduced in beautiful four-color printing, as well as new texts about the artist's pieces in this medium. The book also contains a detailed glossary of ceramic terms and a review of the forms most commonly used by Picasso. The only book in print on this beautiful and highly imaginative part of Picasso's oeuvre, Picasso: Ceramics is an essential volume.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Los Angeles Times

R. Daniel Foster

Picasso employed his trademark bravado and lavish imagination to bust rules while steeping himself in fired clay’s ancient traditions.

NEW! Picasso: Ceramics

NEW! Picasso: Ceramics

Picasso really could do it all. "Two-handed Vase with Faun's Head and an Owl," (1961) is one of approximately 4,000 ceramic works produced by the artist between 1947, when he first tried his hand, and 1964. More than 150 of Picasso's most important works in clay are collected in Picasso: Ceramics, the Louisiana Museum's concise and delightful a new release. Platters and bowls, vases and bottles, pitchers, jugs, cooking vessels, figures, still-lifes and floor tiles all make appearances, decorated with human, animal and abstract forms. continue to blog
