René Buthaud Midcentury Nude Study, Signed Gouache on Paper



René Buthaud midcentury nude study, signed gouache on paper. Provenance: The artist, collection Michel Fortin, Paris: Collection of Stephen Engel, Florida: Literature: Cruège, René Buthaud. René Buthaud was seen as the most accomplished and important French ceramist of the Art Deco period, an opinion held to this day. He designed simple stoneware forms, made for him by local potters, and used crackle glazes with which to decorate them. He was also influenced by African tribal art, evident in those pieces where he used lusters or what he called ‘peau de serpent’ (snakeskin). Many of his best-known pieces are painted with supine female nudes. Work by Buthaud can be found in the collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among many others.
