Object Description

Glazed ceramic by Jean Luçat (French 1892-1966), inscribed “Dessin J. Lurçat Sant Vicens, D.L., 22/50, dessin III”.

This designs demonstrate Lurçat’s fondness of the symbolic and poetry which formed the core of his artistic expression. Thus a plate, a bowl, a jug or a tile, becomes an object of beauty and exquisiteness.

An important and successful painter of the School of Paris, Jean Lurçat single-handedly revived tapestry-making as an art form during the 1930s. Lurçat’s artistic eye simultaneously wandered towards a multitude of other media, including engraving, book illustrations and – most notably – ceramics. During the 1950’s Lurçat worked prolifically at the ceramic workshops of Sant-Vicens in the Southern French city of Perpignan.
