A comprehensive exploration of the life and works of French ceramicist, Adrien Dalpayrat in a meticulously produced luxurious, oversized format
Adrien Dalpayrat was one of the most highly regarded ceramicists working in France in the late nineteenth century. Dalpayrat's recognition came relatively late in life, at age 45, when he first revealed the distinctive oxblood glazes for which he was best known, along with the variety of stoneware forms he employed - everything from gourds to fantastical marine creatures. Dalpayrat's works are included in global private and museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Musee d'Orsay, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Cooper-Hewitt.
In this book architect Peter Marino shares his collection of Dalpayrat masterpieces, each beautifully reproduced in a luxurious, oversized format with 270 color illustrations. Also included is a foreword by Peter Marino and insightful essays by curator Etienne Tornier as well as an extensive plates section with works by Dalpayrat.
With the same trim size and overall design, the volume is the perfect companion to Peter Marino's previous book, Theodore Deck.
