Ceramique 1900

Robert LALLEMANT (1902-1954) - France

After studying at the Beaux-Arts in Dijon, under the guidance of Ovide YENCESSE, he goes to work at LACHENAL from 1921 to 1922 in order to learn and improve his art as a ceramist. The next year he buys a small workshop of "bleus de Sèvres" at 5 passage d'Orléans in the 13th district of Paris, which he later moved to Quai d'Auteuil. He starts then, with the help of his wife, a very avant-gardiste production. For each of his models he makes a drawing then a plaster on which he keeps working until he gets a perfect shape; then he makes a mould. Sensitive to the graphism of LABOUREUR, LEPAPE or VALMIER, his themes deal with popular songs, sports, vices and virtues, he enjoys painting history, geography or folklore and gets his inspiration from industry. He makes cubist and highly constructed drawings that one can of course also find on his vases and also on lamp-stands enormously successful alon with the rest of his works which the papers of the time greatly praise.
A member of UAM (Union of Modern Artists) he is one of the rare modernists with Jean LUCE to have used ceramics in order to create models deeply rooted in the modern vision of the time.
