Sotheby’s to sell unique Pablo Picasso ceramics from the Collection of Marina Picasso

By mid-career, Picasso seems to have been effortlessly brilliant – at everything. On holidays in 1946, he wandered into a pottery studio and thus began a long involvement with ceramics. Critical acclaim for his work in this medium has gradually become more emphatic. The linked essay, images and an excellent little video come largely from Sotheby’s – hardly a disinterested party. But, it is Picasso.
