Rare Picasso Ceramics Come to Heritage AuctionsPablo Picasso ceramics at auctionArray in Oct. 22 Prints & Multiples Auction includes Le déjeuner sur l'herbe plaque estimated at $40,000+
A particularly impressive collection of ceramics on offer demonstrates Picasso's noted ability to adapt to a multitude of media while fully expressing his creativity. The group is offered at various price points to assure that, no matter the budget, welcome entry estimates greet every collector, said Holly Sherratt, Director of Prints and Multiples.
Picasso began working with ceramics toward the end of his career; he experimented with straightforward artworks such as Visage à la barbiche, 1968 (est. $8,000-12,000), an earthenware plate featuring the face of a man. He expanded his approach not only to different shapes but subject matter, as seen in the Terre de faïence pitcher titled Tête de femme couronnée de fleurs, 1954 ($25,000-35,000), La pique, 1950 (est. $6,000-8,000) and Toros, 1952 (est. $4,000-6,000).
Additional desirable artworks include Figure de proue, 1952 ($4,000-6,000) and Losange à la danse, 1971 (est. $400-600).
Heritage Auctions' presentation of the prints and ceramics of Pablo Picasso appear is the Oct. 20 Prints & Multiples Signature Auction, which is now open for bids at HA.com/8022.
