Reinvitation to press preview, 15 May, 13.00 pm.
The Röhsska Museum is showing the exhibition Picasso on a Plate. Ceramics 1948-1971.
Radical and imaginative in his thinking, unrelentingly witty, and always a subject of myth and storytelling, Pablo Picasso (1881–1973) is one of our past century’s greatest artists. The works he created reflect a dramatic feeling of life while masterfully merging influences from different ages, eras, and cultures. Driven by his famous curiosity, Picasso was constantly keen to explore new ground, gladly trying new techniques in collaboration with his artist colleagues from other fields. In the final quarter century of his life, ceramics, whichfor many represents a less well known aspect of his artistic production, came to command a significant portion of his creative energies.
The Röhsska Museum’s exhibition presents around 70 ceramic pieces, designed by Picasso and produced in limited editions by the Madoura workshop in Vallauris, southern France in 1948-1971. The exhibition also includes some 20 posters and linocuts by Picasso related to his ceramics and the exhibitions where they were displayed.
The artworks featured in this exhibition are on loan from The Lake Collection of Picasso Ceramics and private and public Swedish collections.
The Röhsska Museum is showing the exhibition Picasso on a plate. Ceramics 1948-1971 from 17 May – 28 September 2014. The grand opening is on Saturday 17 May at 13.00 CET.
