Pair of Picasso "Woman with ears of wheat" Limoges Porcelain Plates

US$372.22per set

About

Pair of Limoges porcelain plates decorated with a pattern designed by the famous Pablo Picasso (25.10.1881 Málaga - 08.04.1973) named "Woman with ears of wheat". Pattern by drawing realized in 1950 with a dove carrying flowers alongside the face of a woman, also adorned with ears of wheat. Design was made for the French Communist Party alongside 29 other patterns, then made in lithography. Pablo Picasso was a Spanish world-famous artist who had a brilliant artistic career and spent most part of his life in France. His cubist paintings were very popular, but he also was a prolific draughtsman with a minimalist style. His drawings are in black and white, with sharp lines depicting poetic faces, delicate animals, or flowers. His designs were used in his Vallauris ceramic production or also used thanks to engraving for other collaborations.

About the Illustrator

Pablo Picasso

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.
