A PICASSO Works in Clay exhibition of the iconic artist's ceramic creations has opened at the Cyprus Museum in South Nicosia and runs until September 8.
In July 1946, Picasso visited Vallauris, France, a small coastal town known for its pottery, and quickly became enamoured with the ceramics produced by the Atelier Madoura.
He partnered with owners Suzanne and Georges Ramié, ushering in one of the most prolific periods of his career as ceramics were quickly produced, cheap and within the reach of ordinary collectors.
“My father never considered himself a potter, but approached the medium of clay as any other to find out what it could offer him and what he could discover," said the artist's son, Claude, adding that his father often gave his works to friends and family.
Admission to the show is priced at 4.50 euros which includes access to the museum's permanent galleries.
The show is closed on Mondays but may be visited from 8am to 6pm Tuesday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and from 10am to 1pm on Sundays. The first Wednesday of each month will open from 8am to 8pm.
