An intriguing reflection on the medium, Pablo Picasso Pichet au vase (Pitcher with Vase), 1954 draws attention to its own form. The placement of a two-dimensional vase on the side of a three-dimensional pitcher highlights the similar curvature of these two forms while emphasizing their different functions.

Created in 1954, this pitcher of white earthenware clay is decorated in engobes under partial brushed glaze is from the edition of 500. Featuring the inscribed stamps 'Madoura Plein Feu' and 'Edition Picasso' on the bottom.
