Pablo Picasso Madoura faun pottery bowl c 1955, measures 7.25 inches.Conceived on 30 March 1955 and executed in an edition of 100. Here is a listing for one that sold at Christie's lot 163 lot 9951 June 18 2013 Mischievous and seductive, the faun is one of the mythological creatures most admired by Picasso. In his first years at Madoura Piacsso produced a number of sculptural heads of fauns and this continued throughout his body of work in clay (see lots 30 and 36 and linocuts 14, 55 and 68). Picasso once said it was the town and surrounding area of Antibes, founded on the ancient Greek settlement of Antipolis, which brought him daily to the antique: ‘I cannot explain the call…at Cannes I don’t think about it, Why? But at Antibes this antiquity seizes hold of me every time.’ On his trip to the Cote d’Azur with Françoise Gilot in 1946 he filled canvases with fauns and centaurs for the walls of Chateau Grimaldi. Having never been to Greece and only twice visiting Italy, it is remarkable the effect the ancient civilization had on the artist’s work. Working at the Madoura pottery made his associations with antiquity even more direct.
