An important collection of ceramics by Pablo Picasso will head to auction at Sotheby’s on November 22 in London. The vases and earthenware belonged to the late English actor Richard Attenborough, who amassed an impressive collection of Picasso ceramics during his lifetime. Picasso’s experimentation with ceramics began in 1946, when he was introduced to the Madoura pottery workshop in France. During his career, Picasso produced several thousand ceramic works and continued to experiment with the medium until his death.
