Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Sculpture in Vallauris
  • Picasso's sculpture "L'Homme au Mouton". The first sculpture by Picasso to be installed in a public place, according to the artist's wishes, the presence of the Man with a Sheep in the market place generally arouses the curiosity of visitors.

  • It was produced in 1943 and gifted to the town in 1949 as thanks for the warm welcome Picasso received. As a mark of gratitude, the town gave Picasso honorary citizen status.
    There are two other copies of this sculpture, one in Philadelphia and the other at the Picasso Museum in Paris.
