Wall-Plaque by Georges Jouve

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Made to be displayed as a wall-hung plaque, this large Georges Jouve piece would serve admirably as a charger or even a serving dish. Decorated in a marvelously spontaneous hand, with a stylized fish in black against a cream background, surrounded by a border decorated with a frieze of blue, red and green ovals set against a chartreuse background. Jouve returned periodically to fish motifs; this particular design is well documented.

Literature: Michel Faré, "Georges Jouve", Edition Art et Industrie, Paris, 1965, p. 60.
