EDMOND LACHENAL AND HIS LEGACY documents the shifting styles of this important French Ceramists and also the styles of his contemporaries. With over 183 colour plates, the publication extends not only to the work of his master, Theodore Deck, but also includes pieces by some of his disciples, his sons Raoul and Jean-Jacques Lachenal, and his assisstant Emile Decoeur. This first ever presentation of Lachenal's career includes scholarly essays, period photographs and thoughtful descriptions of each of the 71 pieces represented. Placing the work of Lachenal in context with his peers and followers reveals not only the rich artistic culture in which he lived and worked, but also the series of subtle transitions that evolved in French ceramics from the middle of the 19th century until after the Second World War. ILLUSTRATIONS: 190 colour & 25 b/w
