Théophile SOYER, Renaissance-Style Ornamental Dish, 1880


Height: 1'' ⅛  3cm
Diameter: 16'' ⅛  41cm

France, 1880

This enameled ornamental dish was created by Théophile Soyer in 1880.

Théophile Soyer (1853-1940) learned his craft from his father, Paul Soyer , who was already practicing the technique of painted enamels, before joining the École des Beaux-Arts. He studied under Eugène Levasseur and Adolphe Yvon. He began working with enamel in Courbevoie, then joined his father's workshop, which he took over in 1896.

He exhibited for the first time at the Salon in 1870, then regularly between 1875 and 1882, as well as at the Expositions of the Union Centrale des Beaux-Arts starting in 1876. His great technical mastery was rewarded with a silver medal at the World’s Fair in 1889, and then a gold medal in 1900.

Soyer actively participated in the artistic life of his time: he was successively Vice-President of the Chamber of Ceramics and Glassware and President of the Société des Éclectiques, a humorous society founded in 1872 by etchers and poets.

He married Eugénie Dejoux, a painter-enameler of Genevan origin, with whom he had a daughter, Jeanne, who worked with her parents before marrying in 1906.

Théophile Soyer's work was part of the troubadour and Neo-Renaissance movements, at a time when past styles were in vogue.
