Lot Details

Picasso’s ceramics have a whimsy and a sense of freedom unmatched by his paintings and works in other media. In "Corrida with Figures," the artist uses the shape of the bowl to dictate the structure of the composition. The hollow center of the bowl becomes the pit of the bullfighting ring, and he uses the bowl’s outer edges to depict the stands filled with spectators watching the match from above.

This lovely dish was conceived by the artist on June 11, 1950, and was produced in an edition of 50. The work was done in O.P. white earthenware clay with decoration in engobes under the glaze in six colors.
