Dish, ca. 1775
This is a Dish. It was manufactured by Olérys and Laugier's pottery factory. It is dated ca. 1775 and we acquired it in 2017. Its medium is tin-glazed earthenware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
This hunt scene is in the style of the Florentine artist Antonio Tempesta (1555–1630). Beginning around 1720, the Clérissy manufactory at Moustiers drew heavily on Tempesta’s prints for the creation of monochrome blue wares. Here, Olérys and Laugier emulate Clérissy in the central scene, but introduce their signature polychrome palette for the border garlands.
