With its bold black lines and striking earthenware clay coloration, Pablo Picasso’s ‘Yan Pitchern’ mimics the shape of a bird with a spout for a beak and wings resting by its sides. Picasso regularly manipulated his ceramics to imitate animal forms, subtly referencing both Asian and Egyptian pottery in its form and motifs.
