Lot description
This stunning, graphic portrayal of a bull is an early ceramic by Picasso. Bulls were a source of fascination for Picasso, who depicted them countless times across all mediums. Here, the animal's form is reduced to a few elegant lines, which emphasizes the noble animal's virility and also references ancient cave drawings. This turned dish of white earthenware clay is 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.
