Set of four decorative plates by Roger Capron (circa 1950s). Acquired from a family of Capron collectors who have held them for over 60 years, these plates with stylised characters are in excellent vintage condition with only very minor blemishing on the back side. The four painted images are each unique, but related stylistically. The colours are as vivid as the day they were created. This is an exceptional collection for those admirers of the works of master ceramicist, Roger Capron. Signed: 'Capron' with production code.
About the Artist: The mid-century ceramic art of Roger Capron (1922 - 2006) embodied the vibrant spirit and verve of Vallauris and the French Côte d'Azur. He took over an abandoned pottery studio at the age of 24 in Vallauris, where he worked with Robert Picault and then Jean Derval. Capron’s ceramic workshop, known as "l'Atelier Callis", contributed to the renaissance of ceramics in Vallauris and at its peak employed over 120 ceramicists. He eventually expanded his production of vases, pitchers and other functional wares to include coffee tables with hand glazed tiles, lamp bases, wall plaques and other interior decor objects along with sculptural statues for public installations.
