Robert Picault

Robert Picault was born in 1919 and after studying ceramics at the Ecole des Arts Appliqu├ęs in Paris moved, at the end of World War Two, to Vallauris where, with Roger Capron, he founded the Atelier Callis in 1946. Two years later he set up his own pottery in the Chemin du Fournas.

He was a friend, colleague and next-door-neighbour to Pablo Picasso, and the two learnt from each other aspects of the other's specialities. Picault was also an accomplished cinematographer and photographer, and made a series of four short films with Picasso and leading show-business personalities of the fifties.

He used copper oxide and iron oxide in his glazes, and the bulk of his work is characterised by green and brown motifs on a white background.

Picault died in 2000.
