Les Bleus de Sèvres: The Legacy of France’s Porcelain Manufacture

New York Master-Craftsmen’s Gallery, Les Ateliers Courbet announces Les Bleus de Sèvres, an exhibition presenting a selection of decorative art pieces reflecting the on-going legacy of France’s revered porcelain manufacture, Sévres. Founded in 1740, the manufacturers have collaborated with artists and design luminaries including Auguste Rodin, Louise Bourgeois, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Ettore Sottsass and Aldo Bakker among others.

The installation will highlight a selection of pieces reflecting Sèvres’ porcelain expertise through one of its oldest and most iconic glazes — the trademarked Bleu en Lapis. Curated together by Sèvres and Les Ateliers Courbet, Les Bleus de Sèvres brings to the United States old and new sought-after pieces by artists including E.J. Ruhlmann, Pierre Charpin, Francois Dumas, Michele de Lucchi and Jean-Baptiste Fastrez — giving a glimpse at the breadth and depth of Sèvres’ portfolio of artistic collaborations over the past few centuries.
