  2. Art Embodied at its Most Elegant

    In his twenties, Christian Dior exhibited works by Picasso, Dalí, Cocteau, Miró, Ernst, Klee, and Braque in his art gallery near the Champs-Élysées in Paris. Perhaps the simple lesson the future fashion designer learned from those provocateurs was that, when it comes to couture, looks cannot be deceiving: therefore such Dior lines as Verticale, Oblique, Ovale, Longue, Profilee, and Tulipe were all instantly recognizable classics.

  15. 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.
