Posted on 13 April 2011 in Barcelona, always!

The Barcelona Ceramic Museum is holding an exhibition entitled ‘Terres blaves‘ – Blue Lands about blue, a primary colour with over 110 shades that, since 2600 BC, has been closely associated with the history of ceramics in the Middle East (Mesopotamia and Egypt).

It was introduced to China during the 8th century through the Silk Route and it reached Al-Andalus by sea in the 13th century. Eventually it spread throughout Europe from the Iberian peninsula. The exhibition introduces the works of contemporary artists who have been fascinated by this colour’s rich range of shades and effects and who have exploited all its possibilities to adapt them to their own artistic languages.

Terres blaves is an exhibition in appreciation and recognition of Trinidad Sánchez-Pacheco (1931-2001) for her lifelong dedication to pottery, on the tenth anniversary of her death. The exhibition consists of works Piccasso, Braque, Miro and Gardy-Artigas, ceramists and professionally linked with Sanchez-Pacheco like Maria Bofill, Antoni Cumella, Madola, Rosa Amoros and others.
