Historical Description

A curious expression stares out us with a thick brow and mysterious grin. Is it a faun, another mythical being that Picasso was so fond of portraying, or a self-portrait? The abstracted facial features and rich colors on this ceramic evoke a forceful expression. Through the wild white hair and blue poignant features, Pablo Picasso Visage No. 46 (Face No. 46), 1963 attests to the artist's mastery of expressive and playfulness with the ceramic medium.

Created in 1963, this Madoura round plate of white earthenware clay with decorations in engobe and enamel (blue, white) is numbered from the edition of 150. This work also features the handwritten inscription: ' N.46 | EDITION | PICASSO | MADOURA' on the verso.
