On occasion of the 47th Congress of the International Ceramic Society, to be held in Barcelona in September with a focus on ceramics in architecture and public space, the Picasso Museum (in collaboration with the event) will present a selection of more than 30 photographs from our collection, taken by relevant photographers – Chamudes, Duncan, Otero and Villers – while Picasso was working on ceramics. Picasso participated in the first editions of this encounter at Cannes. This was a decisive factor in his artistic development as a ceramicist, as it was where he discovered the Spanish ceramic tradition.
