Opening Inaugural Exhibition
“Picasso: Life on the Côte d’Azur”


In 1946, Pablo Picasso, a titan of twentieth-century art, visited the town of Vallauris in the south of France and met the potters George and Susanne Ramie. By the summer of 1947, he was fully engaged in creating ceramics. Until then Picasso was known for his complex and hermetic works. While savoring the warm air of Southern France, Picasso began to create ceramics with the aid of local artisans. This exhibition introduces Picasso’s ceramic works and their background as well as explores the changes in Picasso’s daily life and the innovations that his ceramics brought about in relation to his time.
