1940s Eugene Deutch Modern Ceramic Dish


An early and scarce ceramic work by the Chicago studio potter Eugene Deutch (1904-1959). This hand-painted "tulip" dish has a subtle burgundy and gray glaze, exemplifying the artist's preference for simple, clean motifs. The oval form reflects Deutch's modernist aesthetic. Signed "E. Deutsch" and dated 1942. Born in Budapest in 1904, Deutch left Hungary in 1923 and moved to France where he briefly studied sculpture under Brancusi. In 1927 he moved to Chicago where he set up his studio and developed a loyal group of collectors. From 1930 until his death in 1959, Deutch's contribution to Chicago's emerging avant-garde and the history of American studio ceramics was significant. Deutch's work is in the collection of the Milwaukee Art Museum, and The David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago. In 1959 The Art Institute of Chicago had a retrospective of his work.
