Louisiana Museum of Modern Art celebrates its 60th anniversary with the exhibition.


To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen, has on display more than 160 unique ceramic works from the renowned artist.

Picasso began working with ceramics shortly after moving to the South of France following the end of WWII, where he worked at the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris.

It's a region where ceramics have been produced since the Roman age.

The exhibition houses Picasso’s works on loan from museums in Paris, Antibes and Barcelona.

Even items from the Picasso family's private collection are showcased.

Picasso designed 633 different ceramic editions. Every piece features a stamp or marking, sometimes even inside the piece itself.

Attending a preview of the new exhibit was Picasso's grandson Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, who said the collection shows how his grandfather's creativity in ceramics developed over nearly 20 years.

"So Picasso's ceramics developed a very intense variety of subjects and forms and shapes just to intrigue us and make us look more precisely at what we are observing," he said.

The exhibition is open until May 27.
