Museum Collection of Picasso Ceramics Made Available for the First Time
Exhibition Opens to the Public Oct. 9, 2009
Andrew Weiss Gallery, Beverly Hills
The Andrew Weiss Gallery is proud to present the opening of an unprecedented exhibition, “PICASSO CERAMICS (1947-1969)” October 9 - December 12, 2009. More than 50 rare ceramic works will be made available to collectors for the first time, returning from a ten year museum tour nationwide.
This exhibition represents one of the largest and comprehensive collections of Picasso ceramics to be offered by a private gallery. The collection spans over 20 years of ceramic works, from his first platters in 1947 to his last engraved plaques in 1969.
Through ceramics Picasso was able to invent new forms of art. As in painting, he redefines the meaning of ceramics, and the very definition of art itself. The exhibition which includes drawings, etchings and lithographs exemplifies Picasso’s passion and life-long pursuit to explore and master all mediums. In addition, the exhibition will include important works by other 20th century masters, Salvador Dali, Joan Miro, Marc Chagall, and Henri Matisse.
The Gallery is located at 179 South Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills. Open Mon-Sat. 11:00am- 5:00 pm or by appt. For more information call (310) 246-9333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
