New Delhi, Sep 9 (SocialNews.XYZ) The bidding period for Picasso Ceramics, an online-only sale of ceramics that reflect Pablo Picasso's renowned joie de vivre, runs from September 6 through September 20, 2022, at Christie's. These zany pieces honour an incomparable time in Picasso's career and express it through the artist's signature vibrant colours and funny forms. After the unpredictability of the war years, the artist embraced his renewed sense of joie de vivre, soaking up and savouring the light, colour and enduring traditions of the South of France that re-energised his work.


The connection between Picasso and the Madoura pottery, which lasted for over 25 years, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. Over 600 different editioned designs, along with many more one-of-a-kind creations of diverse sizes, shapes and subjects, were the result of this successful collaboration. One of Picasso's most innovative artistic mediums, ceramics are influenced by both tradition and modernity.

Among the highlights is the original 1949 piece Oiseau mangeant un ver (estimate: ?30,000-50,000). The work, which is a clever pottery with intricate, sinuous strokes, is a classic example of Picasso's brilliant investigation of humorous forms.

Additional highlights include Visage aux yeux rieurs (A.R. 608) (1969, estimate: ?25,000-35,000), which is offered from a Private European Collection and sold to benefit a charitable foundation, and Visage au nez noir (A.R. 609) (1969, estimate: ?25,000-35,000), which was produced in a limited edition of 200 pieces and exhibits the artist's boundless spontaneity and vigour.

Following Christie's New York's wildly successful Picasso Ceramics online sale in May, which was 100 per cent sold with five lots selling for over $100,000, this auction will feature items from the Picasso Ceramics collection.

From September 7 to September 20, 2022, Christie's headquarters in London will host an exhibition featuring highlights from the Picasso Ceramics sale.
