• Picasso began using ceramics as image carrier for his characteristic abstract figuration at a later point around 1946. • His vast and versatile oeuvre of ceramics, which came into existence between 1948 and 1971, was made in cooperation with the ceramicists Suzanne and Georges Ramié in the Southern French village Vallauris and reveals Picasso's imaginativeness and the pleasure he took in artistic experiments.
