Robert Picault Mid-Century Modern Ceramic Plate, Vallauris

About

A rare portrait plate by the French potter Robert Picault (1919-2000). A compelling ceramic work signed and dated 1950. An important 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. Reference: See French Pottery of the 50s by Pierre Staudenmeyer, p. 242, for a similar example.
