When it comes to the world of art, few names are as iconic as Pablo Picasso. The Spanish painter, sculptor, and printmaker was a master of his craft, and his work is some of the most coveted in the world. If you’re lucky enough to own a piece of Picasso art, then you’re sitting on a goldmine. More specifically, today we’re looking at Picasso’s Madura pottery pieces, how they came to be, and how to sell Picasso Madura pottery at auction through Joshua Kodner Galleries.
Picasso and Madura Pottery
In 1946, Picasso stumbled upon a pottery fair near his summer home in the South of France. There, he met the owners of the Madoura Pottery workshop and began a collaboration with the studio that lasted until his death in 1973.
During his time with Madoura Pottery, Picasso created some of his most famous pottery pieces. He produced a wide range of pieces, from simple vases to elaborate figurines and sculptures. These pieces are now highly sought after by collectors all over the world, and they can sell for well into the six figures at auction.
The Value of Picasso’s Pottery Pieces
The value of Picasso’s pottery pieces can be quite staggering. While many pieces have been sold for several thousand dollars, some of the more famous Madura pieces have sold for much more. In 2011, a Picasso vase sold at auction for over $13 million. This however is the exception rather than the rule. Many Madoura plates and bowls can be found for sale in the 5 to 10 thousand range.
