Old pair of impressionist earthenware vases. Atypical painted decoration of hen and rooster busts. Theme dear to the artist Charles Virion (1865-1946) Green background monogrammed PLC; Vases engraved with CH. 15.5cm in height. In very good condition, to report some enamel firing defects. The term impressionist ceramic generally applies to "slurry painting" or "vitrifiable gouache". At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the villages of Montigny-sur-Loing and Marlotte were the places of residence of many painters such as Jean-Baptiste Corot, Eugène Thirion (1839-1910), Adrien Schulz (1851-1931), Numa Gillet (1868-1940) and Lucien Cahen-Michel (1888-1980), all attracted by the quality of the landscapes and the light. When Eugène Schopin founded a ceramic factory in 1872, he collaborated with these painters to create a range of models inspired by Impressionism and decorated according to the new demands of the public. Several ceramic factories will develop around this impressionist movement. The most renowned, such as that of Georges Delvaux (1834-1909), Albert Boué (1862-1918) and Charles Alphonse Petit (1862-1927), produced until 1922. Other factories, such as that of Théodore Lefront in Fontainebleau, will collaborate with the artists and ceramists of Montigny. ** Charles Virion (1865-1946): animal sculptor (Ec fr). Pupil of P. Aubé and Ch. Gauthier. Exhibited at the Salon of French Artists since 1886; honorable mention in 1893; member in 1893; third class medal in 1895; bronze medal in 1900, at the Universal Exhibition; des Animaliers since 1913.
