Roger Capron Plate, circa 1950

About

The figure is based on a Greek figure found on 'Krater' vases & the remains of art found around Vallauris on the French Riviera where this was made and Capron lived. A Mid- Century ceramic decorative plate which embodies the vibrant spirit and verve of Vallauris and the Cote d’Azur. Capron founded the craft-based workshop in Vallauris, France, l'Atelier Callis, where his creations contributed to a veritable renaissance of pottery and ceramics. He was friends with Pablo Picasso who was also living in Vallauris at the time this piece was made. Much like Picasso, Capron’s design aesthetic was in constant evolution, as he worked in a variety of different styles from the 1950s onwards. In his early career, Capron was a proponent of the Formes Libres movement, characterized by undulating, expressionist lines and patterns. By the 1960s, however, he had moved on to a more controlled, modernist style, with bright glazes and bold geometric patterns. Today Capron's pieces are highly prized by collectors around the world.
