The Fall of Icarus – Picasso

Commissioned in 1957, the trapezoid-shaped mural is located in the main hall of the conference building at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris.

THE composition had to be cut in order to fit the architectural structure of the hall, which is why Picasso’s signature is missing, and at the time Unesco thought the mural was too modern.

The 40 panel mural was initially titled “The Forces of Life and the Spirit Triumphing over Evil”, but was renamed in 1958 by George Salles, who gave the mural its current title, “The Fall of Icarus”.

    I have à ceramic plate with the same motive as “Dancing Gypsy” above. Who has manufactured that? On my plate it says Viker Germany. I am not sure about Viker?
    Best regards

    I have a wall installation of 5 pieces by Vallin. 3 medium size pieces and 2 large. The are done in the Etruscan style, horse, lion with bird, ram and a large centerpiece of abstract circles. The texture and colors are amazing. I cannot find anything on the artist. His signature varies in style but all are signed Vallin or B. Vallin. The carry another mark that looks like a large C surrounding an H E. I am very good at research but I am stumped. I believe these pieces to be from the 60’s. They were purchased by my grandparents from a place called Artz I believe. The sales tag is still attached. Any information regarding the artist would be greatly appreciated.

    I worked for Stan Bitters for a short time and his work is still being made at the age of 85. Remarkable work ethic.
