Pablo Picasso, Visage aux yeux rieurs (Laughing-eyed Face), 1969

Medium: White earthenware clay turned pitcher with decoration in engobes (blue, green, red, white) under partial brushed glaze

“Picasso defines his subject with recessed lines and applications of color under a partial brushed glaze, adding an element of texture and shine to this already mesmerizing piece. There is something truly hypnotic about this work, as Picasso draws us in with his swirling lines and bold, gestural strokes.”
