French Mid-Century Modern Robert Picault Ceramic Charger

About

A large, glazed ceramic oval plate by the master French potter Robert Picault (1919-2000.) An early pioneer in modern French ceramics, Picault moved to Vallauris in 1945 and in 1948 set up his own pottery on the Chemin du Fournas. This monumental oval platter, with a stylized bird design and strong copper and iron oxide glaze, is a collector's piece. It is a personal work by the artist and signed "PICAULT." In an excellent, recently published book by Sylvia Vautier, Picasso/Picault A Magical Moment in Vallauris 1948-1953, similarly- decorated plates are illustrated on pp 130-131. The author notes that the border of the plate, called the marli, or rim, is painted with geometric patterns. In this monograph, Vautier also examines the personal and professional friendship between Picault and Picasso when both were working in Vallauris. Reference: See French Pottery of the 1950s by Pierre Staudenmeyer, p. 236-243, for more detailed information on Picault's work.
