THE PICASSO’S ART REPRODUCED IN CERAMICS!

Pablo Picasso is considered an artistic master, partly because Picasso´s oeuvre extends far beyond traditional painting methods, and encompasses all artistic mediums including:lithography, etching, linocut, and fine art pottery. Picasso gleaned a particular joy in creating ceramics, as evidenced by Picasso´s thousands of ceramic objects including: wittily decoratedterra cotta plates, charming ceramic figures, earthenware pitchers, clay masks, glazed plaquesand hand–painted tiles, all created with Picasso´s child–like whimsy.
More than 50 original pieces of pottery by Pablo Picasso are being auctioned at Christie’s. The lot contains plates, vessels, glazed tiles and terracottas made by the brilliant Andalusian artist. These works will be able to be acquired the upcoming November 11th in the Christie’s sale room in South Kensington, London. They will be part of an auction dedicated to impressionist and modern art, with paintings by the likes of Andre Derain, Carlos Nadal and Jean Cocteau also to be sold. The most expensive piece is a glazed terracotta tile with paintings on both sides, with an estimated value at 30.000-50.000£. Even though, for an amount around 700 or 800£, you can acquire one of the exquisite glazed ceramic plates, a Picasso after all. On the images bellow, you can see some of that ceramic products listing by the highest price.
