From practicing Realism early in his career to pioneering Cubism, Pablo Picasso made significant contributions to the art world. Along with being renown for his paintings, the Spanish printmaker, painter, sculptor, and poet is also known for being a ceramicist. The upcoming November auction, the Picasso Ceramics Online Auction by Christie’s, displays an array of ceramics for auction buyers.
The collection’s diversified categories range from medallions and plaques to sculptures and vases. The first featured item on the list is a ‘Le déjeuner sur l’herbe’ (Lunch on the Grass) at the highest estimated value. Highlights also include a stamped and marked ‘Vase aztèque aux quatre visages’. Displaying four faces, the vase is a white earthenware ceramic vessel which is partially engraved with colored engobe. In Picasso’s words ‘Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.’ Representing similar values is a vase with two peculiarly high handles. For more information, visit Christie’s.
