His intense passion for the ceramic art developed Picasso in the summer of 1946, after a visit to an exhibition of the local pottery community in Vallauris. On the following day he went to the ceramic workshop of Suzanne and Georges Ramié, and followed their invitation to model some small ceramics. With the acquisition of the Villa La Galloise at the Côte d'azur, the artist was a frequent guest at the Ramiés. Until his death in 1973, an extensive work, which includes numerous unique a variety of editions was born. Its pottery shows predominantly positive motives. This is due to their creation time. The second world war had just come to an end and Picasso was a difficult phase of life behind. After Francoise Gilot had separated from him, got to know the artists, the young Jacqueline Roque. All the works of the 50s and 60s reflect, therefore, a certain light-heartedness.
