Lot Essay


Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat (1844-1910) worked predominantly in stoneware and occasionally in earthenware and porcelain, onto which he applied innovative coloured ceramic glazes. The elevation of stoneware to an art medium in France followed the exhibition of traditional Japanese wares in Paris in 1878. This resulted in a looser style for ceramics emerging, with an interest in organic forms, rich surface patination, and abstracted decoration.
