27/11/20. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Metropolitan Musem of Art, New York, this book sets out show how painted and sculputured works in clay formed a vital part of Picasso's output during his last decades, and how these works are intimately related to his art in other media. From the moment Picasso first visited the Madoura workshop in Vallauris in southern France in 1946, he was attracted by the unusual possibilities inherent in clay. The book's illustrations demonstrate how he transformed everyday objects - plates, bowls and vases - into art, and also, typically, invented completely new forms. The book includes contributions by the artist's son and grandson, Claude Picasso and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso.
