A frequent source of fascinating for Picasso, the bull is featured across all media the artist studied. This glazed and engraved ceramic plate depicts the robust animal as an abstract form. Reminiscent of the stylized Paleolithic cave paintings found in the French Pyrenees, the animal is created from economic use of line and design. Elegantly designed, the bull sits on a bright yellow background. Another example recently fetched $33,602 in 2013 at Christie’s South Kensington.
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.
