Robert Picault "Flute Player" Ceramic Plate, 1950

About

A figurative plate by the midcentury French ceramist Robert Picault (1919-2000) depicting a flute player, and reflecting the artist's painterly attention to detail. Signed and dated by the artist. (Picault's personal pieces are rare and signed with his full signature.) A beautiful addition to a collection of Mid-Century Modern French pottery. In an excellent, recently published book by Sylvia Vautier, Picasso/Picault A Magical Moment in Vallauris 1948-1953, she notes that "Picault's most personal creations consisted of portraits of women and nudes painted in green or black on white enamel" and adds that the artist often used the decorators in his studio as his models. Vautier also examines the personal and professional friendship between Picault and Picasso when both were working in Vallauris. (It is interesting to note that the flute player was also a common theme in Picasso's ceramic work.) Reference: See French Pottery of the 50s by Pierre Staudenmeyer, p. 242 for more information on Picault.
