Picasso: Painter And Sculptor In Clay

Gallery Bon Bon

Regular price R 700.00

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) is unquestionably one of the most important and revolutionary artists of the 20th century. Surprisingly his exciting work in ceramics -- several thousand pieces -- has never been thoroughly surveyed. This lavish volume, which accompanies a major traveling exhibition, reveals for the first time how painted and sculptured works in clay formed a vital part of Picasso's output during his last decades, and how these joyous works are intimately related to his art in other mediums.

From the moment Picasso first visited the Madoura workshop in Vallauris in southern France in 1946, he was attracted by the unusual possibilities inherent in clay. This book's man color-plates show how he transformed everyday, objects -- plates, bowls, and vases -- into art, and also, typically, invented completely new forms.

Picasso kept most of his ceramics. With this book, which includes preparatory drawings and wonderful photographs of the artist at work, they assume their rightful place in his legacy. Google Books
