For Object & Thing Magen H Gallery has partly reprised its 2018 exhibition Vallauris: An Expression of Ceramic. This ceramic production center on the Côte d’Azur is well-known because of Picasso’s collaborations with potters there (beginning in 1948), but many other artists and designers also produced work at Vallauris, reaching a high point of creativity in the 1950s. Much of this work possesses the same formal ease that Picasso’s ceramics do, and also shares his interest in African masks and sculpture. Capron was one of the early innovators of the Vallauris scene, moving to the area during World War II following his studies in Paris. He first operated a decorative art firm, l’Atelier Callis, with fellow artist Robert Picault, and in 1952 took over a disused pottery for his own individual creations.

Regular price $11,500
