    PICASSO CERAMICS
    < Back

    The University Museum and Art Gallery is excited to announce its exhibition of “Picasso Ceramics” from the Nina Miller Collection, which provides a unique opportunity to study the sculptural qualities and three-dimensional aspect of Pablo Picasso's work, never before seen in Hong Kong. From World War II to the end of Picasso's life in 1973, the Spanish artist created thousands of carefully sculpted and, often, colourfully glazed, objects that give testimony to his artistic diversity, ingenuity and enormous creative powers.

    The exhibition includes more than 100 ceramic works, both Picasso's Madoura editions and unique individual pieces, as well as lithographs and posters designed by the artist, and images by renowned photographers depicting Picasso in his studio and home. Coming from one of the largest collection of the artist's ceramic ware in the world, this is the first time that the London-based Nina Miller Collection is ever seen publically.
