Picasso enjoyed an exceptionally long and fruitful career and produced an estimated 50,000 artworks throughout his life spanning all media. Experimenting with different styles and techniques, he is regarded as a founding father of Cubism, an art style inspired by the geometric shapes that come together to create larger forms and figures. He employed these techniques in sculptures, paintings, drawings, and ceramics, and many other artists drew inspiration from this movement.
Bouquet à la pomme, produced in 1956, is a delicate white earthenware ceramic featuring a still life scene. With a simplistic and honest representation of the essential lines and shapes of what makes a flower a flower, Picasso's attention to detail is mesmerizing, portraying each flower in this bouquet in a different and unique way. The captivating blue color that covers most of the plate highlights the dynamic relief and depth of the composition. Picasso’s work is among the most expensive in the world, and several of his pieces hold records across several auction houses for fetching the highest sale prices in different categories.
