Picasso. Ceramics from the Attenborough Collection, York Art Gallery, York. Closes 5 November 2017.

Lord and Lady Attenborough began collecting ceramics by Picasso in 1954 and continued collecting for over 50 years, building one of the most significant private collections in the UK. Highlights from their collection have been loaned to York by the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester. The Picasso ceramics created in the 1950s will be shown within York Art Gallery’s Centre of Ceramic Art (CoCA), which showcases ceramics by more than 600 artists including the founders of the British Studio Ceramics movement.
