Historical Description

Pablo Picasso Paysage (Landscape), 1953 A.R. 204 features a ruminative depiction of a house within a bold midnight landscape. A jet black glaze covers the surface of the ceramic and constitutes a rich background upon which lie the details of the house and landscape. The engraving in this work add a unique tactility to the surface of the ceramic that elevates the plate from an object of utility to a decorative luxury item. Lines carve out the black background with shocks of color without the need to shade or fill in the outlined shapes. The dark blue asterisks along the rim of the plate resemble the appearance of stars in the night sky, extending the scene beyond the inner face of the plate. Simple yet poignant, Pablo Picasso Paysage (Landscape), 1953 A.R. 204 attests to the artist's ability to convey an entire scene with sparing yet effective line work.

Created in 1953, Pablo Picasso Paysage (Landscape) A.R. 204 is a white earthenware clay plate with decoration in engobes (blue, green, white and black) and knife engraved under glaze. Numbered from the edition of 200, this work is stamped with the ‘MADOURA  PLEIN FEU’ and ‘EDITION PICASSO’ pottery stamps on the reverse.
