Picasso's Madoura Years

Christie's London June Sale

The fortunate few had their last chance of owning Picasso's Madoura Collection last month at Christie's June 25th Sale. Over 550 ceramic works were presented and they spanned a total of 24 years, between 1947 and 1971. Those were the years that the master spent with his second wife, Jacqueline Roque at the Madoura Pottery in Valluris. According to Christie's, this coveted collection was the last opportunity for collectors to purchase them directly from where they were made.

Form As Fantasy
The conventional shapes and faces of the figures formed a fantasy. This was Picasso at one of his best periods. Experimenting with a new medium and making it work - his way, of course.
