Description/

Georges Jouve was a French ceramicist considered one of the most important creators in the medium of the 20th century. His work is known for its unique formal techniques and imaginative concepts, often based in Southeastern French potting traditions of ceramic religious objects. Born in 1910 in Fontenay-sous-Bois, France, he went on to study at the prestigious École Boulle in Paris where he learned sculpting techniques and studied art history and art theory. During World War II, the artist was captured by German forces and was able to escape and hide out the rest of the war at a potters’ village in the South of France known as Dieulefit. He then returned to Paris where he opened his own studio in 1944, and went on to exhibit at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs in Paris, the Association Française d’Action Artistique in Rio de Janeiro, and in various exhibitions held in Vienna, Toronto, Rome, Milan, and Cairo. Jouve died in 1964.

Enameled ceramic.

Georges Jouve was born in 1910 in Fontenay-sous-Bois into a family of decorators. At the age of 17, Jouve went to study Art History and sculpture at the École Boulle in Paris. He graduated in 1930 and initially became a set designer for theatre productions.During World War II, Georges Jouve was held captive in a German prisoner of war camp from which he eventually escaped. He went to live in Dieulefit for refuge, and was greatly inspired by this potters’ village in Southern France, learning their local techniques. In 1944, upon Jouve’s return to Paris with his family, he opened his own ceramics studio there. He created strong and simply shaped pieces, covering them with bold enamels, often referencing religious themes.Jacques Adnet asked Jouve to exhibit at “La Ceramique Contemporaine” at the Compagnie des Arts Français. From then on Jouve exhibited his work at various Salons nationally and internationally, including the Salon des Artistes Decorateurs in Paris, and the Association Française d’Action Artistique in Rio de Janeiro.
