    Ceramics and Cubism

    Picasso’s Man with a Sheep, which he considered to be one of his major works, welcomes visitors.

    The artist worked in ceramics in two different ways. First, he decorated traditional shapes like pitchers, plates or other, more unusual objects.
    Then, he decided to create the shapes himself and produced bold contours like the ones found on the Big Bird, Black Face (1951) vase or on his owl-shaped pitchers.
    He used recurring motifs from his paintings, from bullfights to animals and still lifes, and applied them with various methods, including cutting, application of an engobe and enamel.

    This was another area where Picasso introduced technical innovation by using white pastes; he also adapted the linocut process.
