Ceramic pitcher by Les Frères Cloutier
Jean and Robert Cloutier followed an original path through the contrasting landscape of French ceramics in the second half of the 20th century. Supported by a loyal and ever-growing clientele of collectors and professionals, their work is atypical, the field in which they excel is that of zoomorphic or anthropomorphic figuration which populates the most ambitious pieces, where the contrast of black and vermilion of exceptional density (the famous “rouge Cloutier”), or the various extremely sophisticated enamellings are affirmed.
At the end of their joint career, they produced admirable sculpted pieces whose figurative and organic forms, adorned in milky white or intense black, are heavy with mystery and questioning.
True free electrons of French ceramics, the Cloutier brothers embody in their own way the playful optimism of the Trente Glorieuses, with a success that goes far beyond France, particularly in Japan and the United States.
