"Picasso Ceramic Editions: From the Edward Weston Collection"
2000-05-20 until 2000-08-13
Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts
This exhibition presents an outstanding selection of the beautiful limited-edition ceramics
created by the twentieth-centurys greatest multi-dimensional talent, Pablo
Picasso. In August of 1947, Picasso was already a world-famous artist when
he began working at the Madoura pottery workshop in Vallauris, France, in
the workshop of George Ramie.
In the nineteenth century, Vallauris had been
a center of ceramics production, however it had been in decline since World
War I. Picassos interest led to its revitalization and he produced over 600
editions in Vallauris until 1971. Sixty ceramic works-dishes, plates, bowls,
vases, vessels, pitchers and plaques-comprise this exceptional collection.
Visitors to this exhibition will have the opportunity to appreciate a distinctive
body of work by one of the greatest artistic geniuses of the twentieth
