Gold Plate Picasso Face of Torment

Gold Plate Picasso Face of Torment

“The Gold Visage Tourmenté from Picasso had been safeguarded by its owner for 40 long years before it was thrust in the spotlight in June of 2013. The golden plate was one among the 172 ceramic works by the iconic painter, sculptor and ceramicist, and a rare piece given Picasso’s limited use of the yellow metal. Made from 22-carat gold and weighing a little over 2.5 kg, the piece depicts a human emotion – torment – as visualized by Picasso, whose favorite subjects were still-life objects, musical instruments and his friends.”

The plate is now in a private collection and valued at EUR 3,000,000.
