Description: Tête de Femme à la Couronne de Fleurs is one of a series of seven terracotta plaques with black engobe that Picasso produced with the Ramiés at Madoura in 1963 - 64. This work is inscribed with the 'Empreinte originale de Picasso' and 'Madoura Plein Feu' stamps on the reverse; numbered from the total edition of 100 on the reverse.

Condition Report: There is a minor and very well performed restoration to repair a small chip on the right side panel. Otherwise in very good condition.

Notes: The woman with a crown of flowers is a stunning example of Picasso's mastery of Abstraction, Cubism and Classicism. It first appears to be a classic portrayal of a woman with flowers in her hair. Upon further examination, her heart-shaped face intrigues the viewer as it simultaneously appears to depict a woman's face in a frontal as well as two profile views. Her long, wavy hair flows around her shoulders while her head is crowned with a ring of flowers. Like a linocut, the image in this clay plaque is achieved through a reductive process meaning the image was created from what was left over after portions of the surface were removed. The ink attaches only to the remaining surface areas, and not to the incised area as a beautiful woman emerges from the clay. The printing process for this work was done with a black engobe pad. Engobe decoration is a specialized technique where the artist mixes a liquid clay substance and "paints" it directly to the clay surface. Because the color is actually in the liquid clay, the color remains fresh and richly saturated throughout the life of the piece. The large scale of this work allows the refined details to be fully appreciated. An example of this work is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
