Pablo Picasso: 25 Years of Limited Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection
The ceramic plates, bowls, and vases were created by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the internationally known painter, sculptor and graphic artist, in collaboration with Georges and Suzanne Ramie and the artisans at the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris, France from 1947-71. Together, they produced 633 different ceramics in limited editions ranging from 25 to 500. A prolific artist throughout his career, he was no different as a ceramicist as he produced, invented and discovered thousands of unique creations during his years at Vallauris.
This exhibition, which features 46 original and limited-edition ceramic works, will be complemented by the lecture, "Picasso: Art & Psyche", by Elisa Korb, J.D., Ph.D., assistant professor and chair of the Department of Fine Arts at Misericordia University, on September 11, 2014 at 2:30 and 6:30PM in the Lemmond Theater in Walsh Hall. A reception will follow the 6:30PM lecture.
The exhibit, special lecture, and reception are free and open to the general public.
WVIA has posted a podcast with Brian Benedetti that aired June 13 concerning the "Pablo Picasso: 25 Years of Limited Edition Ceramics."
