Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer who spent most of his adult life in France creating art.
This rare piece of ceramic art by Pablo Picasso was purchased in the USA. If you need more photos I will return to the storage (museum) and take them at your request.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This has nothing to do with the pottery that Picasso was making at the Madoura potters.
