Pablo Picasso is commonly regarded as one of the artists most responsible for the revolutionary developments in ceramic arts during the opening decades of the twentieth century. This ceramic plaque is decorated with a profile portrait of Picasso’s most famed and celebrated muse, Jacqueline Roque (1927 – 1986). Jacqueline worked at the Madoura Pottery workshop on the French Riviera where Picasso created his ceramics. She became his lover and then his second wife in 1961. The two were together for the remainder of Picasso’s life.
