Provenance: Robert Picault (1919 - 2000) studied ceramics at the Ecole des Arts Appliqu├ęs in Paris and moved to Vallauris where, with Roger Capron, he founded the Atelier Callis in 1946. Two years later he set up his own pottery in the Chemin du Fournas. He was a friend, colleague and next-door-neighbour to Pablo Picasso, and the two learnt from each other aspects of the other's specialities. Picault was also an accomplished cinematographer and photographer and made a series of four short films with Picasso and leading show-business personalities of the fifties.
