Vintage Robert Picault Vallauris Art Pottery Handled Bowl, 1950s



A rare and important stunning French art pottery handled serving bowl by Robert Picault and made in Vallauris in the South of France. Working closely to Picasso each piece is hand decorated with green, brown and incised patterned designs along with a flower painted to the inside base. Every item of this renowned artists work is unique and would form a real statement piece in any serious collection. With initials RP painted to the unglazed base. Provenance: Robert Picault (1919 - 2000) studied ceramics at the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in Paris and moved to Vallauris where, with Roger Capron, he founded the Atelier Callis in 1946. Two years later he set up his own pottery in the Chemin du Fournas. He was a friend, colleague and next-door-neighbour to Pablo Picasso, and the two learnt from each other aspects of the other's specialties. Picault was also an accomplished cinematographer and photographer, and made a series of four short films with Picasso and leading show-business personalities of the 1950s.
