Whose work is this?

Recommended Posts

I have no idea, but I like both very much.

 

The drawing on the plate might superficially look like it could have been drawn by a kid, but I think that is not the case, unless it is a very talented one.

I've no idea really, though the pitcher form has a slight resemblance (with the striped pattern and style of both handle and top) to a blue and white pitcher form I had seen once, attributed to P.Picasso. The platter though doesn't remind me of anything I've seen by Picasso, so I really can't say.

 

As Frederick... I like both as well!

 

Thanks for posting those Lucille.

Yes, both pieces are Pablo Picasso.

 

The link below is quite a read. It takes some patience and maybe a larger type face to make it comfortable to read. But when you are done there maybe a quiz, open book of course (not really). But this is an interesting essay.

You can learn alot about what has been done and what can be done. I hope you will enjoy this and learn something that you can use in your own work. http://andrewweiss.c...cassoessay.html

Here is a 9 page gallery of other images of Picasso's ceramics- http://andrewweiss.com/ceramics.html

If you've noticed I had to change the images. For some reason the original ones disappeared. So I replaced them with these from Google images.

 

 

 

 

 

laugh.gif Ha Ha Ha... I was analyzing them again thinking that you had a new quiz, as the pitcher doesn't have the tell-tell characteristics that seemed to tip me off the first time..... Then I thought the platter was the same as last time and that you changed them to confuse or stump me further. Then I just wondered if in fact this was somehow a warped morphing of my memory and in actuality Alzheimer's was beginning to make an appearance into my life. What a relief!

 

er.... uh.... so is this the same artist? laugh.gif

No, I wasn't trying to trick you but if you feel Alzheimer's setting in, there are B12 drops for that.

If you 'Google' Picasso Ceramics you will see a rather large number of pieces that he decorated or pieces he had specially made for him to decorate. There were quite a few issues of the works replicated for the pottery in which he was working. Some were replicated 200 or 300 times and stamped for authenticity.

Ha Ha.... I like that! kind of like the Prado printing up more prints from Goya's plates whenever their budget gets tight. Not saying they've ever done that...laugh.gif

why do we think that just because something was made by a famous artist that the stuff is actually good? If I had made either of these two pieces I can safely say that most people would say they wouldn't give them house room. I can hear my husband now...."hmmm, not your best dear".

No one said it was 'good'. Some artists are 'nervy' and 'gutsy'. When an artist such as Picasso is capable of a more 'classical' or 'traditional' style of work seeing what he relays through a different medium or genre piques interest.

All so often I will see a piece that I really do not care for, but looking at things from another perspective I ask myself "What can I learn from this?" Usually there is something to be learned from looking at almost everything out there, whether it is texture, feeling for line, composition, color, or a basketful of other ideas. Then again too some times, not often I come away learning one thing, I don't like it. However, I have tried.

yes I agree. However I think sometimes it's a gut reaction that doesn't need over analysing, one either likes it or one doesn't. sometimes we don't even know the reason we don't like something it's just "wrong" a bit like some people are disliked on first sight, it saves time!
