This creatively designed ice pitcher depicts a delineated face composed of broad green lines. Gazing straight ahead, the subject takes on a mysterious air, framed by fluid blue and brown lines. The cylindrical shapes at the top are decorated with graphic lines, the black bolding contrasting with the white clay. Another example from the edition recently fetched 72,500 GBP ($106,414) at Sotheby’s London in 2015.
Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973)
A prolific and tireless innovator of art forms, Pablo Picasso impacted the course of 20th-century art with unparalleled magnitude. Inspired by Primitivism and developments in the world around him, Picasso contributed significantly to a number of artistic movements, notably Cubism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and Expressionism. Along with Georges Braque, Picasso is best known for pioneering Cubism in an attempt to reconcile three-dimensional space with the two-dimensional picture plane. Picasso’s sizable oeuvre includes over 50,000 paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, theater sets, and costume designs.
In excellent condition.
