Pablo Picasso's World of Bulls and Bullfighters

Launch Slideshow

Beginning in the late 1940s, Pablo Picasso began spending his summers on the Cote d’Azur in the South of France. Inspired by the remarkable Madoura pottery works he saw there, the artist began producing ceramics of his own. It would prove an enduring fascination — Picasso created ceramics for more than 25 years and his creations ranged broadly in theme and shape. As with his paintings and drawings, in his ceramic works Picasso repeatedly returned to the motif of bulls and picadors. The theme would yield Picasso nearly endless innovations – click ahead to see a few.
