Pablo Picasso – Exposition Vallauris 1957 (B.1277)

Pablo Picasso, Exposition Vallauris 1957 (B.1277) is an original Linocut made in 1957.  Signed in blue crayon lower right, and numbered in pencil in the lower left from the edition of 175.  Image Size: 25 x 21 inches. Frame Size: 45 x 32 inches. Czwiklitzer 24. Bloch 1277.

Vallauris is a town of the French Riviera near Antibes known as the “city of 100 potters”. Its name (Valauria in Provencal) means “the golden valley”. It is divided into two parts: the upper town is the old center, and the other part, the seaside from the port along the coast, towards Antibes. The pottery of Vallauris is originally traditional culinary ceramics that was probably born at the time of the Roman occupation thanks to clay deposits nearby. After the war, Picasso gives a new impetus to the pottery of Vallauris by settling in the city.
