Pablo Picasso Ceramics

Spanish, 1881-1973

One of the most prolific and revolutionary artists the world has ever seen, Pablo Picasso had a tremendous impact on the development of 20th-century modern art. Although he is best known for his association with the Cubist movement, which he founded with Georges Braque, Picasso’s influence extends to Surrealism, neoclassicism and Expressionism.

“Every act of creation is, first of all, an act of destruction,” the Spanish artist proclaimed. In Picasso's Cubist paintings, he emphasizes the two-dimensionality of the canvas, breaking with conventions regarding perspective, foreshortening and proportion. Picasso was inspired by Iberian and African tribal art. One of his most famous pre-Cubist works is Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), a painting considered immoral and shocking at the time for its depiction of nude women whose faces resemble Iberian tribal masks.

Picasso made many portraits in this style, most often of the women in his life, their expressively colored faces composed of geometric shards of surface planes. In Woman in a Hat (Olga), 1935, he painted his first wife as an assemblage of abstract forms, leaving the viewer to decipher the subject through the contrasting colors and shapes. Picasso was a tireless artist, creating more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculptures. Tracing his life’s work reveals the progression of modern art, on which he had an unparalleled influence.

Questions About Pablo Picasso Ceramics
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Pablo Picasso made ceramics at the workshop of Suzanne and George Ramie in Vallauris, a town in the South of France. The artist met the couple when he visited the area in 1946. That trip sparked Picasso's interest in creating ceramics of his own. Shop a collection of Pablo Picasso art on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, Pablo Picasso did indeed make ceramics. He started working with clay in the later years of his life as a sort of escapism from the heavy demands of painting. Shop a selection of Pablo Picasso pieces from some of the world’s top art dealers on 1stDibs.
