France, 19th century

Théodore Deck, Decorative Dish in Glazed Ceramic with Tulips This decorative plate with tulips was created by the ceramist Théodore Deck at the end of the 19th century.

Théodore Deck initially trained in the stove-making industry. When he established himself in Paris in 1858, he manufactured stove coverings. Buoyed by his success, he then ventured into ceramics. His workshop created numerous plates, sometimes in collaboration with recognized painters. He gradually perfected his technique and achieved significant success at the many Universal Exhibitions he participated in. In 1878, he was made an Officer of the Legion of Honour. He directed the Sèvres manufactory from 1887 until his death in 1891.

Against a vivid yellow-orange background adorned with lightly embossed decorations, two tulip flowers stand out, one white and one violet. In the background, a shrub with orange flowers transitions with the colorful background of the plate. The bluish greens of the stems and leaves complement the bright tones of the flowers.

This work reflects the fashion of Japonism that swept through European art from the 1870s to the early years of the 20th century, which particularly influenced Théodore Deck, a collector of East Asian art.
