Lot description
This is Picasso’s very first edition ceramic created in 1947. Similar in style to his unique pottery, "The Diaulos Player" takes the form of a face inside a platter, in this case a satyr playing a diaulos, a wind instrument commonly depicted on ancient Greek pottery. This piece shows Picasso’s continuing interest in Greek mythology which was prevalent in his paintings during World War II. It is made of white earthenware clay, decorated in engobes, which consists of a fine clay mixed with coloring oxides, and engraving under a yellow glaze. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this work.
