This majestic ceramic features an animated centaur gracefully elevated on Pablo Picasso ceramic Centaur, 1956, a radiant white dish. Frolicking in the center of this white dish, a centaur rears up and almost appears to wave out at us with glee. Instilled with a sense of animation and liveliness, this is a truly eye catching and enchanting work. Position around the central centaur figure is an elementary relief patter, directing the eye towards the illuminating character inside. The lines are animated, bringing a pointed life to the plate. Picasso’s effortless design evokes a playful theme demonstrating the extraordinary skills this modern master possessed.
Created in 1956, this original round dish of white earthenware clay is from the edition of 100. This work is stamped with the 'MADOURA PLEIN FEU' and 'EMPREINTE ORIGINALE DE PICASSO' pottery stamps on the reverse.
