Pablo Picasso Ceramic White Owl on Red Ground , 1957 is a stunning offering from the prolific artist that combines Picasso’s fondness of owls in his subject matter, with his interest in Greco-Roman pottery in his coloration. Featuring the stunning palette that underlines the natural beauty of the terracotta clay, this Madoura turned round dish showcases the owl with spread wings in a frontal pose. Black engobe painting contrasts against the body of the white form of the bird, Picasso’s mastery of line showcases in the whimsical patterns that define his features and decorate the dish.

Adding to the allure of this Picasso Madoura ceramic, is the decoration on verso. The convex back of the dish is painted in white engobe with knife engraved abstract lines decorating the surface. It is details like this that exemplify Pablo Picasso's complete embrace of the ceramic medium as he explores the multidimensional quality of clay sculpture and the unending potential that it offers.

Created in 1957, this Madoura turned round dish of red earthenware clay with decoration in engobes (black and white), knife engraved, with decorated back is numbered from the edition of 200. This work is stamped with the 'MADOURA PLEIN FEU' and 'EDITION PICASSO' pottery stamps on the reverse.
