About

Original ceramic plate in colours, c.1950. Lurcat was a well known Ecole de Paris artist who frequented the circles of Picasso and Marcus's and was prominent in the cubist movement. His work is heavily influenced by Jean Cocteau. He is best known today for his Tapestries and Ceramics. In 1950 Lurçat was asked by Firmin Bauby if he would work for his St Vincens pottery at Perpignan. From then until 1966 Lurçat visited the pottery and created ceramics under the guidance of the head of the workshop, Gumersind Gomila. Faience jugs, dishes, vases and tiles were made by the potters and decorated by Lurçat.
