[pp] 16 Rare printed guide to Picasso's exhibition of ceramics in Vallauris for 1955. 16 page pamphlet which reproduces Picasso's linocut invitation to the exhibition on the cover. Laid in, a 'Vallauris Presente' flyer for the exhibition. Browning and creasing close to the edges of the cover and a small amount of penmanship; a few short closed tears through the text. A fascinating document which includes half-tone images of Picasso at work in Vallauris, reproductions of the other linocuts that he had executed for the Vallauris exhibitions from 1950-1955, local advertisements and a plan of the exhibition. It was during his years in Vallauris that Picasso became fascinated with ceramics when he met Suzanne and Georges Ramie. Picasso's approach was idiosyncratic and, unsurprisingly, highly successful. We can find no record of this ephemeral publication in any library.
