Picasso Ceramics: Lord & Lady Attenborough's Collection

Sotheby's will offer Lord and Lady Attenborough's stunning private collection of Picasso ceramics for auction in November. They amassed the works over a fifty year period, acquiring many of them from the south of France on family holidays, in the same region that Picasso first turned his attention to working in ceramics. The diverse collection of vases, plates and jugs bear many of Picasso's signature motifs such as faces, flora and fauna – and includes a number of unique works hand painted by the artist, as well as editions made with the Madoura pottery in Vallauris. Join us for at New Bond Street for a gallery talk with Marilyn McCully, renowned Picasso ceramics expert and author of Picasso Ceramics: The Attenborough Collection on Sunday 20 November at 2pm.
