Christie’s Is Set to Auction a Series of Picasso’s Ceramics in September

Christie’s will hold an online-only auction of Pablo Picasso‘s whimsical series of ceramics from September 10 to 22. According to the auctioneer, sales of the works have been surging behind the scenes and the event will be a great entrance for collectors, both old and new, as some estimates start as low as $1,100 USD. The art on auction will range from plates and bowls to an array of intricate vases, all of which were made during the years between 1947 to 1971.

Picasso sculpted his ceramics with a childlike curiosity — each brought to life through unique facial features, animal characteristics, and a harmonious choice of colors. Amongst the highlights of the offering is the artist’s Taureau (A.R. 255), 1955. Edition: 86/100 — a vase featuring a playful bull, which is estimated to fetch around $82,000 to $11,000 USD.

Christie’s will also auction select prints and multiples by Picasso, when the event commences on September 10 at 2:00/14:00pm BST.

Elsewhere in art, visitors to an unauthorized Banksy exhibition in Seoul are requesting refunds.
