One of the numerous iterations of Picasso’s interpretation of the human face, this glazed ceramic plate is expressively painted with strokes of blue, green and black. The simplified face portrays a small smile while it’s two eyes – one facing upwards and the other down – play with the viewers’ perception. Another example fetched 23,750 GBP ($37,091) at Christie’s South Kensington in 2012.
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.
