Picasso Ceramics
The Attenborough Collection' draws from a unique collection of over 140 Picasso ceramics collected over the last 50 years by Lord and Lady Attenborough. All of Picasso's activity with ceramics centred around the Madoura pottery factory in Vallauris, France. For the most part, Picasso utilised existing popular forms, including plates, jugs and tiles, but he also modelled or designed new forms, combining aspects of painting and sculpture in the medium of ceramics. This exhibition explores Picasso's developing relationship with ceramics, from 1947 to his death in 1973. The Attenborough collection was built up from 1954 onwards through frequent visits to the Madoura pottery. As such it follows the development of the artist, with works from the whole of Picasso's time at Madoura. For further information on this exhibition.
