Utilizing clean-cut lines and strong color contrasts, Picasso depicts the profile of a goat. Picasso utilizes crisp, brown lines to delineate the profile of the goat's head and to add a sense of texture to the piece, conveying the feel of the goat's fur and horns. These brown lines contrast sharply against the white background, causing the image of the goat to stand out to the viewer. The goat appears as a delicate figure with a thin neck and elongated face, contently chomping on blades of grass.
Created in 1950, this round/square plate of white earthenware clay with decoration in oxidized paraffin (brown, green) and glaze bath is from the edition of 60. This work is stamped with the 'MADOURA PLEIN FEU' and 'EMPREINTE ORIGINALE DE PICASSO' pottery stamps on the verso.
