Footnotes

  • The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Ateliers Hugo.

    Provenance
    Atelier François and Pierre Hugo, France.
    Galerie 27, Paris.
    Chevalier Tony Clark, Los Angeles (acquired from the above in 1985).

    During the 1950s and 1960s, Picasso commissioned François Hugo, great-grandson of the eminent French writer Victor Hugo and a master-craftsman himself, to execute a series of plates, dishes and medallions in gold and silver after the artist's original models and designs, conceived of originally for ceramics. These images, most often of impish faces, bull's heads and doves of peace, are emblematic of Picasso's easy and happy life in the South of France at the time. Having met and fallen in love with Jacqueline Roque at the Madoura ceramic factory, his output during this period seems to showcase an ease of expression and a state of well being.
