  6. Picasso’s Ceramics

    Pablo Picasso, who spent his summers on the French Riviera, visited the nearby Madoura ceramics factory in Vallauris in 1946. He soon found that working with clay was a relaxing summer respite from the more strenuous demands of painting. The Spanish artist began pursuing his new-found passion with utilitarian objects, but proceeded to create more ambitious forms as his career progressed. 

    Now, we’re very excited to feature a beautiful selection of ceramics by Pablo Picasso on artnet Auctions. The works create a fascinating overview of the artist’s final creative burst in sculptural form.

  8. Remembering Picasso

    "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." - Pablo Picasso

    One of the most prominent and innovative artists of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso was born on this day in 1881 in Málaga, Spain. 

    Held in the highest regard during his lifetime, he is celebrated for his lengthy and prolific career working in several modernist idioms, as well as for co-founding Cubism. In 1973, Picasso died in Mougins, at 92 years old, and is renowned today as one of the pioneering and most influential forces of 20th-century modernism.

  12. Jacqueline, After Picasso

    In order to create witty, bold, and often deceiving images based on art history, Vik Muniz incorporate unusual and everyday materials into his photographic process, such as dust,diamondssugar, ketchupcaviar, and wire. The artist borrows from pop culture and Old Masters artists such as Georges Seurat and Vincent Van Gogh to make his works more familiar, calling this approach the “worst possible illusion.” 

    Pictured is his 2007 work, Jacqueline, after Picasso.

  13. Picasso, Baby

    Jay-Z performed Picasso Baby, for six hours at New York’s Pace Gallery yesterday, to the delight of fans and art lovers. The rapper’s music video shoot was inspired by the work of performance artist Marina Abramović, who attended the show. Taking inspiration from Abramović’s 2010 installation, The Artist Is Present, Jay-Z faced off with some well-known faces such as artist Mickalene Thomas and Laurie Simmons as well as director Judd Apatow. 

    In Picasso Baby, Jay-Z namedrops an impressive number of artists — Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Jeff Koons among them. Quite an appropriate track to introduce in a gallery space.

    “It’s a fairly lackluster group,” a New York-based art appraiser told Bloomberg, If you think about the amount of money this man had, he could have been buying fabulous paintings.” 

    Among the items to hit the block are a 1947 Pablo Picasso lithograph, a set of lithographs by Roy Lichtenstein and a small 1952 crayon drawing by Henri Matisse

  15. Bull

    This stunning portrayal of a bull is an early ceramic by Pablo Picasso. Bulls were a source of fascination for the artist, and are seen countless times across all mediums.

    Here, the animal’s form is reduced to a few elegant lines, which emphasizes the noble animal’s virility and also references ancient cave drawings.
