Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso & His Madoura Ceramics By the late 1940’s, Pablo Picasso was withdrawing from the pressures of Paris and spending more time at his villa above the town of Vallauris in the south of France. In the summer of 1946, he visited a crafts fair and noticed the works of Madoura ceramic potters. Inspired to try the medium for himself, he asked Georges and Suzanne Ramie, who operated the studio, for the opportunity to work in their studio.

From 1947 to 1971 the Ramies set aside space in their studio for Picasso to work whenever he pleased. This is where all of the Picasso ceramic in the world came from. In return, Picasso allowed the Ramies to make and sell editions of the ceramic pieces he produced at Madoura, and to retain all profits.
